Codes of Practice

Since its inception, the UK Roads Liaison Group (UKRLG) has considered the dissemination of best practice one of its key roles. Accordingly, it has published three codes of practice

1.Well-Lit Highways, on street lighting management
2.Well-Maintained Highways, on highway maintenance management
3.Management of Highway Structures, on bridge maintenance management
The UKRLG and its boards recognise that highways maintenance is a constantly changing discipline. The codes of practice are deliberately designed with an eye to future updates.
