Maintenance Activities

Most parts of the Islandís highway asset will be improved at some time during the first seven years of the new highway service.

Whilst all of the investment work is being carried out, Island Roads’ teams will be working hard to maintain the highways asset.  The planned seven year improvements will not happen all at once, so some problem areas may need temporary fixes until our Construction teams can provide a more permanent solution.

Responding to problems or faults, which impact on the public highway, such as: carriageway and footway potholes, cracked and loose kerbs, flooding, blocked highway drains and fly tipping, will be the responsibility of our teams.

Our District Response teams and other specialist teams will work in partnership with Parish and Town Councils and key organisations on the Island to provide a responsive highway maintenance service undertaking repairs to enhance the network.
