Structural issues

What is this for?

To report a structural issue with a highway.

The Highways and Transportation Service, as a local authority, will maintain and repair:

  • walls supporting the structure of the highway which are owned by the authority - these are called highway retaining walls
  • walls retaining land that has been excavated in cutting to form a highway parapet wall on bridges
  • walls providing a safety barrier for example a steep drop at the other side of the wall
If you believe the problem is dangerous and could cause an emergency situation, please ring during office hours (Monday to Friday 8:30am - 5pm) 01302 736000 or outside of these hours 01302 323444.
