Road maintenance

Bedford Borough Council is responsible for maintaining the structural integrity of roads and footways on adopted highways in the borough.  An adopted highway is one where the local authority has taken on the legal responsibility for maintenance.

Bedford Borough, through its agents, inspect every adopted highway on a regular basis.  Any area of road or pavement which is found to be dangerous is noted and is either made safe or a repair arranged .

Each year we undertake various structural surveys on the condition of all adopted highways. This then provides us with the information we need to prioritise all structural maintenance schemes into our ongoing programme of repairs
