Highway Maintenance Policy

Planned maintenance to payments system

We're making essential updates to our payments system from 1pm on Thurs 19 October to midday on Fri 20 October. We apologise that we won't be able to take online or telephone payments during this time

Our Highway Maintenance team manage a range of capital and revenue based budgets to ensure the highways, footways and all associated highway assets in York are maintained effectively.

National highway maintenance policy determines the approaches that should be taken by a Highway Authority, City of York Council being designated as such, and requires that a local interpretation of national policy is made to ensure available budgets are utilised to the best effect. Our highway maintenance policy is informed by our Transport Asset Management Plan, and our approach to highway maintenance is summarised in the Highway Asset Management Review policy summary document.

Our updated highway maintenance and streetlighting policies were approved by the council's Executive in 2015, you can view the Executive committee agenda, decisions and minutes from the session held 24 September 2015.

Highways Maintenance Communications Strategy

The delivery of our highway maintenance programme requires effective communications to ensure all road users understand the ways in which we will deliver an improved highway network and take account of the short term disruption that occurs through the delivery of these works.

View our Highway Maintenance Communication Strategy, detailing our approach to highway maintenance communications.

Highways Maintenance Performance Management Framework

The effectiveness of our highways maintenance works are measured through a range of reporting and performance management systems. Our approach to reactive and planned maintenance works is adapted through careful monitoring of these systems to ensure an efficient and effective approach to highway maintenance is delivered.
