Well-Maintained Highways, the code of practice for highway maintenance management was published in July 2005. It provides local authorities with guidance on highways management in an ever changing environment, creating a strong foundation for a positive and lasting maintenance policy. Adoption of the recommendations in this code will help the delivery of Best Value services.
The Code was drafted by a team from Atkins on behalf of the UK Roads Board. It is one of a suite of Codes commissioned by the UK Roads Liaison Group.
