East Sussex County Council required our expertise to carry out a full review of their Skid Policy in relation to the latest version of DMRB HD28/15.  Our CRMT tool within ExpertAssest is fully conversant with HD28/15 with suitable areas for enhancement in relation to the requirements of a local authority.  The revised skid policy and process provided the council with:

  • Production of two staged approach to analysis – initial and Detailed
  • Production of a prioritised list of sites for on-site inspection
  • Production of on-site software for data collection
  • Following the on-site inspection, the production of a prioritised list of sites requiring:
    • Treatment
    • Gully maintenance
    • Sweeping
    • Lining
    • Monitoring

The aim of the project was to deliver a fully auditable and traceable process to monitoring skidding resistance within the council, which was achieved successfully.
