UK Roads Board introduction

“We want to make sure the Code is not too regulatory and too strict to comply with but is more about integrated asset management, locally defined service levels and encouraging creativity to get the very best out of limited resources,”

“We need to relate the risk based approach to the way people manage their own homes – you would want to ensure your roof was water tight before re-landscaping the garden. Given resources, you can’t do everything, you have to prioritise.”
 

James Bailey, UK Roads Board Chairman and Staffordshire County Council’s commissioner for highways and the built county.
