Highways Dilapidation Surveys Help Avoid Future Costs


SCP are pleased to have helped another client avoid the risk of highway damage claims following housing construction works. After all you don’t want a Highway Authority saying your works caused the damage and giving you a bill to put their roads right?

SCP’s Transport Planning team recently completed highways condition surveys prior to the commencement of the construction of two residential developments of up to 140 # units.

SCP were appointed to undertake the surveys to identify any pre-existing highway defects issues on the local road network surrounding the development sites. Our team visited the sites and produced detailed reports highlighting any latent defects and proposing a construction route for the Heavy Construction Vehicles (HCVs). These surveys will then be repeated post-works and any change in condition assessed, taking into account anticipated rate of deterioration.
