The new Code of Practice “Well Managed Highway Infrastructure” has been widely misinterpreted to be orientated around Highway Safety Inspections but as the Transport Minister, Andrew Jones said:
“The review of existing guidance has provided an opportunity not only to update advice to reflect the latest developments in the maintenance sector but also to bring a fundamental change in the way highway infrastructure is managed in the United Kingdom, through the adoption of a risk-based approach”.
