We do regular inspections and maintenance enabling us to catch faults quickly before they cause major cost or inconvenience to the local authority. During inspection, any defects found are recorded and assessed for risk. Remedial action is then arranged, costed and approval sort before any work commences. Such defects include anything from overhanging trees, potholes and misaligned kerbs to illegal obstructions and drainage problems.
Emergency defects are made safe or repaired within the time frame agreed in the contract, usually 24 hours. All other defects are dealt with within different timeframes, depending on priority. This can be anywhere from 28 days to six months. All according to various local authorities requirements. Below are just few examples:
