Hierarchy Review & Redefinition

Hierarchy Review & Redefinition

PROJECT BRIEF

As the Well-Managed Highway Infrastructure Code of Practice, 2016 has been published, Croydon wanted to re-asses and update their hierarchy to ensure it is still relevant and meets today’s needs, whilst keeping in-line with the new Code.


OUR APPROACH

  • Work with Croydon officers to understand the current hierarchy and establish a new ruleset in-line with the new Code.
  • Refresh the highway hierarchy based on the new ruleset, taking into account usage and location.
  • Assess and agree on inspection frequencies against each hierarchy, based on risk.
  • Compare hierarchy and inspection frequencies with neighbouring boroughs to ensure a consistent approach across boroughs.
  • Evaluate resource implications and advise on the best way forward.

PROJECT OUTCOMES

Through this project, Croydon Council has:

  • Updated its highway hierarchy and inspection frequencies through a risk-based approach as per the new Code.
  • Strengthened Croydon’s S58 defence against compensation claims.
  • Established a resource neutral hierarchy regime that focuses safety inspections on the areas of highest risk to the Council.
