Roads - bridges

We are responsible for the maintenance of 191 highway structures on the road network and public rights of way. There is a programme of bridge inspection, maintenance, refurbishment and strengthening works. Priority is given to principal road bridges, however, emergency and safety works are carried out where necessary.

Reporting damage to bridges

If you discover any damage please contact Customer Services to tell us about it.


Special measures such as weight or width restrictions are implemented for sub-standard bridges. Alternative arrangements are evaluated through risk management and value engineering. Permanent restrictions are only used where such arrangements do not conflict with our strategy and the Local Transport Plan.
