1. PREFACE
Sustaining our Streets is presented in three parts. This Handbook forms Part 3 and
provides details of operational services including inspections.
Part 1 The Strategy
Sets out the strategy for Highways Services to achieve Islington’s objectives
Part 2 The Manual
Provides details of the individual elements of the service, their procedures
and processes
Every day our staff patrol the highways to inspect, survey, report on and enforce the
council’s obligations to manage the highway
This handbook provides inspection staff with the detailed information needed to:
 safely carry out their own duties;
 implement remedial action for any incident on in the public realm;
 gain an insight into other inspection procedures.
The National guidance is set out in: Well-maintained Highways
Code of
Practice for Highway Maintenance Management. This document is referred to as
‘the Code’.
Version F July 2013
Page 1
2. HEALTH AND SAFETY
2.1 Introduction
This guidance is to be followed by all staff, agency staff and consultants working on
behalf of Islington. Staff must also be aware of and abide by the Council’s Health
and Safety Policy and all relevant legislation. This guidance is not intended for use
by contractors and others carrying out works on the highway. This section does not
therefore specifically cover traffic management or the requirements of the New
Roads and Street Works Act as they apply to works on the highway.
The highway can be hazardous and staff must be aware of the risks and how to
avoid putting themselves in danger. Although traffic in Islington is generally slow, the
roads are very busy and the risks from moving traffic should not be under estimated.
There are also less obvious risks that need to be taken into account.
The following section is a generic risk assessment, intended to help staff to identify
the common hazards faced in undertaking their normal duties, and the typical
measures to avoid or minimise the risks. Managers must carry out their own risk
assessments for any abnormal activities or functions not included here.
Staff must always be aware of the responsibilities they have to themselves, their
colleagues and the public, to carry out their duties in a safe manner.
Version F July 2013
Page 2
2.2 Training
All staff receives basic site safety and safe working practices induction before
commencing work on the highway.
Inexperienced members of staff should always be accompanied by an experienced
inspector/engineer on site visits.
Permanent members of staff will receive training appropriate for their role within the
organisation. Typically this will include basic first aid, health and safety and dealing
with aggression. Most staff will also require training in the Code of Practice for
Safety at Street Works and Road Works and the New Roads and Street Works Act
1991 (NRSWA).
2.3 Hazards
These are some of the typical hazards inspectors need to be aware of:









Moving Traffic
Trip Hazards
Falls
Contractor’s plant and machinery
Lone Working
Noise
Dust
Pollution
Electricity
2.4 Routine inspection of Footways/Carriageways on Foot
When walking on or near the carriageway the following procedures must be followed:










Always wear a correct high visibility garment
Avoid any unnecessary walking on or across the carriageway
Use subways, footbridges, crossings, islands to cross the carriageway
Avoid walking close to or on the carriageway with your back to
oncoming traffic
Use footways or verges where available
Avoid walking on carriageway at times of poor visibility or night time
Take care at all times, remember the risks
Book-out of the office, include where you are going and when you are
due back
Take responsibility for any others with you, for example Councillors
Keep in touch, take a mobile phone with you, phone in occasionally if
you are out all day
2.5 Working Adjacent to Live Traffic
You should always try and maintain a safety zone between yourself and passing
traffic.
Version F July 2013
Page 3
For all roads within Islington this should be 0.5 metres.
It is recognised this will not always be possible. Whenever your work requires you to
work closer than the safety zone extra precautions should be taken (refer to the Code
of Practice for Safety at Street Works and Road Works).
Remember that where your work activity requires concentration you might quickly
forget the hazards around you.
In these situations employ the most relevant control to reduce the risk:




Use positive traffic control e.g. stop/go boards
Arrange for a lane closure/protection by blocking vehicle
Employ an experienced lookout. However this must not be relied upon as
often motorists will ignore the advice.
Particular care must be taken when working around blind bends.
2.6 Crossing the Carriageway
A live carriageway should only be crossed on foot when safe to do so.
When estimating a safe gap in the traffic to cross, the following rules should be
applied:





Allow at least 3 seconds per lane. (i.e. 6 seconds on a normal single
carriageway)
Where possible cross the carriageway in two stages, stopping at a road island
Allow more time to cross in poor weather, poor visibility or if carrying
equipment
Ensure you can see and be seen by oncoming traffic
Walk don’t run
There is no time constraint placed on safety, inspectors should cross only when it is
safe to do so.
2.7 Inspection by vehicle
Routine safety inspections are normally carried out on foot in Islington, but vehicles
are used for other inspections from time to time.
The main hazards associated with using a vehicle to carry out inspections are
associated with moving slowly amongst other traffic and loss of concentration.
Other risks associated with vehicle use are stopping, getting out of the vehicle onto
the highway and recording information.
To minimise the risks:





Identify which roads are suitable for vehicle inspection
Proceed at a minimum speed appropriate for the road
Use an amber warning beacon (compulsory)
The driver should not use telephone/dictaphone or record information whilst
driving
Use two people, one to drive and one to inspect where appropriate
Version F July 2013
Page 4



Drive and stop in accordance with the Highway Code
If the activity includes getting out of the vehicle, high-visibility clothing must be
warn
All inspectors must abide by the Council’s policy regarding use of Council
Vehicles or other vehicles on Council business. The user must satisfy
themselves that the vehicle is in a road worthy condition and that the vehicle
is adequately insured for business use
2.8 Night time inspections by vehicle
Occasionally night time inspections may be required, for example emergencies,
illuminated signs and street lighting.
Risks are the same as above and the same precautions should be taken plus:




Ensure that adequate signing is in place where appropriate
Time the work to avoid peak traffic flow
Ensure the vehicle is highly conspicuous
Only carry out night time inspections when necessary
2.9 Surface Water Drainage
Including gullies, manhole covers, catch-pits
There is the possibility of falling into deep chambers if covers are removed.
Inspection and maintenance of chambers should be undertaken by experienced and
trained staff only. Chambers or underground spaces must not be entered under any
circumstances (except by trained and authorised staff).
Under normal conditions a gully grate can be safely lifted and replaced by one
person with care. Inspectors must receive Manual Handling training before
undertaking such activities. If the grate is difficult to free, then it should be left to a
specialist contractor.
The atmosphere in a chamber can be hazardous and untrained staff should not lift
covers.
When working near water there is a risk of skin contamination and viral infection is
possible. The following precautions should be taken:





Avoid getting water on skin, in eyes or mouth
Ensure good hygiene is followed
Use protective clothing (gloves as a minimum)
Ensure Tetanus is up to date
Consider carrying a Weilles disease card to identify that you work near water
Version F July 2013
Page 5
2.10 Responding to emergencies
Responding to emergencies on the highway can present additional hazards.
Inspectors should always remember:



We are not an emergency service. Do not enter dangerous areas associated
with road traffic accidents or other incidents unless given the go ahead by the
Fire Service or Police
Do not put yourself or others at risk
If you reach an incident before the emergency services double check they are
on the way, dial 999 if necessary and wait for their arrival
Chemical spillages can present particular risks. Keep away and upwind of any
spillage. If first on the scene, try and keep public at a safe distance.
Spillages may make the surface slippery. Avoid walking over the contaminated zone
even if the chemical is known to be non-hazardous.
If road traffic accidents, wind or fallen trees have brought down cables, they must
always be assumed to be live and treated with extreme caution. A specialist
contractor should be contacted immediately. Try and keep public at a safe distance.
Version F July 2013
Page 6
Site Inspections
This section includes a combination of hazard awareness and basic control
measures recommended for officers carrying out site visits. Officers should also take
into account all of the other relevant sections in this manual. Together they form a
generic risk assessment for working on highway sites. Where this generic risk
assessment does not fully cover the type of site visit being undertaken the manager
must undertake a separate full risk assessment.
On some occasions, such as emergencies, an on-site mental risk assessment will be
needed.
Where necessary consult your Health and Safety representative for further advice.
Version F July 2013
Page 7
2.11.1 Preparing to visit sites
Before visiting a site you should:








Familiarise yourself with any safe working practices, risk assessments,
guidance relevant to the visit. Take guidance with you if appropriate
Ensure you have all relevant personal protective equipment with you
Ensure arrangements for lone working are complied with
Be aware of known hazards on site
Ensure your vehicle is suitable and roadworthy
Book-out of the office, leave information about where you are going and when
you will return
Consider whether you should take someone with you
Consider whether you need to make an appointment first
2.11.2 General Site Hazards
The hazards that are likely to be found on site will depend on the nature and type of
site. Before going to site an assessment of the likely hazards should be made so
proper preparation can be made.
Hazards which may be applicable to site visits include:
Heights, Excavations, falling objects
Do not climb scaffolds, ladders or enter deep excavations unless necessary and
never without supervision from the contractor. You must ensure they have been
adequately inspected by a competent person and are adequately shored, guarded
etc.
Be aware of the potential of falling objects from heights such as moving platforms,
scaffolding, grabs etc. Stay a safe distance or wear head protection.
Do not enter confined spaces unless you have been adequately trained, have the
necessary equipment and a permit to work.
Vehicles and Plant
Before approaching vehicles or plant ensure the driver has seen you and indicated it
is safe to approach. Never stand behind vehicles that may reverse. Try to identify a
banksman and approach him/her rather than the driver.
Be especially aware of 360° operating plant and HIAB grabs etc. Keep your distance
or ensure buckets are lowered to the ground before you approach.
Wear head protection where necessary and do not expose yourself to excessive
noise.
Keep a safe distance from all machinery including disc cutters, pneumatic drills etc.
the contractor should recognise that you may need to come within a site but may not
have all the necessary PPE. The contractor should cease work if necessary to allow
you to approach safely.
Slips, trips and falls
Be aware of areas where you may slip, trip or fall.
Version F July 2013
Page 8
Hazardous substances
Avoid contact, inhalation or digestion of any harmful substances on site, especially all
dusts, asbestos, cement, sealants, hot bitumen etc. It is unlikely you will have
adequate PPE so keep your distance and seek guidance form site foreman.
Never use substances such as spray paint or graffiti remover without a proper
COSHH risk assessment.
Lone Working
Lone working can be hazardous especially if you are going to a remote area or into a
potential conflict situation.
Make sure you follow Lone Working procedures.
Always book-out of the office and state where you are going and when you will be
back. Stay in touch. Consider whether it would be better to take someone else with
you, carry out a risk assessment if necessary.
General Hazards
Be aware of any sharps on site, e.g. nails in wood, broken bottles, syringes etc.
Be aware of electricity cables, above or below ground; especially during wet weather.
Be aware of the risk of violence at work, especially when carrying out enforcement
action. Always check the Potentially Violent Persons (PVP) register. Do not get into
conflict and walk away if necessary.
Ensure you maintain a good standard of personal hygiene. Ensure you clean your
hands before eating.
Always follow safe lifting practices when moving objects. Do not exceed your lifting
capacity. Use manhole cover lifters where necessary.
2.11.3 Approaching the site
If in a vehicle, operate roof-mounted beacon, indicate, slow down and manoeuvre
safely. Park in a safe place, if within the site, enter by a signed access point if
applicable. Your vehicle should be marked ‘Highway Maintenance’. Implement
signing and guarding of your vehicle if appropriate. Where cars are not conspicuous
and adequately marked they may only be parked legally and in accordance with the
Highway Code. The inspector should then walk to site.



Put on your reflective clothing before entering the site
You must also wear safety footwear and helmet as a minimum when on a
construction site
Report to site foreman if work is going on at the time of your visit
2.11.4 Visiting sites to mark up or programme works
If the activity includes working in the live carriageway ensure you take account of
advice in section 2.5.
Note that road marking paint may be flammable and additional risks are encountered
through inhalation of solvents if present. Wherever road-marking paint is used there
Version F July 2013
Page 9
must be no smoking or other naked flame; appropriate protective clothing should be
worn. Always read the product label and follow instructions. If the spray can is
marked hazardous then ensure you have a copy of the COSHH assessment and
follow the advice.
2.11.5 Visiting Statutory Undertakers’ (Utility) Works on the Highway
Certain inspectors will have a role of inspecting these works. The hazards, risks and
precautions will be very similar for these duties as already detailed for other site
visits.
The inspection priorities for these sites are signing, lighting, guarding and protection
of the public from harm. Where risk is posed solely to the site operatives, it should
be pointed out to the on-site supervisor, requested to be corrected and recorded for
the information of the NRSWA company area supervisor. They should be contacted
immediately if the request is not complied with.
The work activity may only be stopped if a threat to the public exists.
Officers who are not NRSWA trained or accredited should not seek to enforce the Act
but should immediately inform the Streetworks section if they become aware of
practices which are considered a risk to the public.
Version F July 2013
Page 10
2.12 Traffic Management at Street Works and Road Works
Whether works are being carried out on behalf of the Council or Utility companies
they must be undertaken in such a way to ensure the safety of highway users. The
Code of Practice for Safety at Street Works and Road Works sets out the minimum
precautions that need to be taken.
All inspectors should be familiar with these requirements and should not ignore
shortcomings, regardless of whether they have direct responsibility.
Problems with utility works should be reported to the Streetworks section or dealt
with directly if the inspector has the necessary experience and accreditation.
Problems with road works should be reported to the highways maintenance section
or to the engineer in charge.
In cases of severe shortcoming, or where there is a significant risk to the public, the
inspector on site should attempt to rectify the situation. This may include re-erecting
signs/guards or contacting the appropriate company. In some situations the
inspector may have to stay on site until the rectification action has been completed.
The following items must be checked when carrying out inspections of sites:


Users of footways are properly protected and guided, and the surface is
suitable. (including use by wheelchairs and prams)
Correct signs are being used and properly positioned, clean and eligible
Version F July 2013
Page 11






Plant and machinery is not encroaching on live carriageway or footways
Excavations are properly guarded and supported
Materials are not stockpiled outside the site
Temporary warning lights and traffic signals are functioning
Adequate safety zone between working area and live traffic is maintained
Traffic signals are correctly installed and operating within guidelines
2.13 Construction Sites
The contractor has primary responsibility for the site so inspectors should always
report to the site office or foreman when arriving at site.
On larger sites you should expect a site induction and may be accompanied whilst on
site.
You should not normally give instruction to contractors’ staff. However in exceptional
circumstances, where there is a high risk of harm to the public and a site manager is
not available then instruction may be given. In these circumstances it is possible to
stop an individual working who is presenting high risk to the public, you should not
however stop the whole site from working unless it is unavoidable. The aim is to
improve site conditions not to stamp your authority on the contractor. Do not act
beyond your level of knowledge or training. Such action may be taken under
Criminal Law in order to fulfil the Council’s duties under the Health and Safety at
Work Act 1974 and takes precedence over contract or other forms of law.
Where direct action is taken it must be:
Version F July 2013
Page 12





Firm, but courteous
Appropriate to the level of risk
Targeted primarily at protection of the public (or Council staff), but there is a
lesser duty to contractors staff
Not exceed the experience, knowledge, training of the officer, although
common sense is usually sufficient
Be channelled wherever possible through the contractors representative on
site e.g. site foreman
Record what you find and any action taken in writing. Take photographs if possible.
2.14 Personal Protective Equipment and other Equipment
When visiting sites suitable PPE should be worn.
For sites where any work is taking place (Construction sites, Utility sites, and minor
works) the following should be a minimum requirement:






High Visibility jacket or waistcoat to EN471 class 3
Safety footwear, with steel toecaps, heat and slip resistant soles, (steel
midsoles for construction sites)
Safety helmet for construction sites
Hearing and eye protection if entering working site
Gloves
Overalls as appropriate
The following equipment should be used as appropriate:





Mobile telephone
Personal alarm (consider if working alone)
Notebook and pen
Digital Camera
Tape measure
When in a vehicle, equipment may include:







Pack of 4 folding flat cones
Sign 7001 Roadworks – with plate ‘surveying’
Sign – ‘Other danger ahead’ with 562 supplementary plates ‘Accident’, ‘Fallen
Tree’
Roof mounted amber beacon
First aid kit

3. THE HIGHWAY NETWORK
3.1 Classification and responsibility
There are approximately 295km of streets in Islington, they can be classified as:
Transport for London (TfL) roads.
14km
These are the former trunk roads and include
A1 (Goswell Road, Upper Street, Holloway Road);
A503 Parkhurst Road, Camden Road and Seven Sisters Road;
A 501 Pentonville Road and City Road.
Maintenance boundary - Islington/TfL is the back edge of footway NOT the
red lines
Principal Roads (Borough A roads)
28km
Principal roads are prominent A roads that provide vital links across the
Borough and act as part of a London network, such as:
A104 Essex Road Balls Pond Road
A1203 Blackstock Road, Highbury Park, Stroud Green Road
A400 Junction Road
A 5203 Caledonian Road
A 1200 Canonbury Road
These Roads are the responsibility of LB Islington but attract funding from
Transport for London
.
Other Borough Roads (B,C and Unclassified)
234.5km
This is the majority of our roads, they are where our residents live and our
businesses operate.
Private Roads
19km
These include housing estate roads where we may maintain the roads by
invitation.
Version F July 2013
Page 14
3.2 New Roads and Street Works Act
There are other classifications of our Highways. For the purposes of the New Roads
and Street Works Act, repair standards and charges for utilities excavating and
reinstating our streets are:
Type 0
Motorways
Type 1
Roads carrying 10-30million standard axles (m.s.a.) per annum
(TfL Roads and some Principal roads)
Type 2
2.5 – 10 m.s.a.

(The majority of our roads)
Type 4
Up to 0.5 m.s.a.
(Estate and Private Roads)
3.3 The Traffic Management Act
The Traffic Management Act (TMA) has also introduced another classification for
London, Strategic roads. These are the routes where the TMA requires us to also
notify TfL of any proposed works.
These roads are set out in Statutory Instrument (SI ) 2005-476

4. HIGHWAY SAFETY INSPECTIONS
4.1 Introduction
Safety Inspections form only part of the inspection regime in accordance with the
strategy. An effective regime of inspection, assessment and recording is an essential
element of highway maintenance. The regime is based on the assessment of the
risks involved and the current version of ‘Well Maintained Highways, Code of
Practice for Highways Management’, first published in July 2005 (The Code of
Practice).
The inspection, assessment and recording should provide the basic information
needed to address the key objectives of the highways maintenance strategy:



Network Safety
Network Serviceability
Network Sustainability
The regime is applied systematically and consistently using a standardised recording
system so that risk assessment procedures are clear and transparent.
Inspections and surveys are carried out under the following categories:
Version F July 2013
Page 17

Safety Inspections – regular, comprehensive inspections of all specified
elements of the network to identify defects. (Supporting network safety)

Service Inspections –tailored to the requirements of particular elements to
ensure that they meet requirements for serviceability. The category includes
inspections for regulatory purposes, including NRSWA, intended to maintain
network availability and reliability – (Supporting network serviceability)

Condition Surveys –identifies deficiencies in the highway fabric which, if
untreated, are likely to adversely affect its long term performance and
serviceability – (Supporting network serviceability and sustainability)
Safety Inspections
Safety inspections are used to identify defects, trigger repairs, protect the asset,
minimise the risk to road users and to support a statutory defence against third party
claims. The defects include those that require urgent attention as well as those where
the location and nature of the defects are such that a longer period of response will
be acceptable.
“Routine safety inspections are designed to identify defects likely to create danger or
serious inconvenience to users of the network or the wider community” (Code of
Practice).
The elements that need to be defined for an effective safety inspection regime are:




Frequency of inspection
Items for inspection
Degree of deficiency
Nature of response
The regime for Islington provides a practical and reasonable approach given the
nature of the borough.
4.2 Safety Inspection Frequencies
Safety inspection frequencies have been developed around the Code of Practice,
recognising that all inspections will be carried out on foot. There is a single
inspection regime for each street or section of street where the street is divided into
two or more sections.
The frequencies recognise that as an inner London authority, the majority of urgent
defects occur on the footways.
Frequencies of safety inspections are based upon consideration of:






Category within the network hierarchy
Traffic use, characteristics and trends
Incidents and inspection history
Characteristics of adjoining network elements
Wider policy of operational considerations and
Staff availability.
Version F July 2013
Page 18
Heavily used pedestrianised areas such as markets are termed Prestige Footways
and are inspected once a month, on days or times when the markets are closed.
Primary walking routes are also inspected once a month, with secondary walking
routes inspected once every three months. Category 3 and 4 footways are inspected
every six months. Whilst recognising the wider operational issues, the target
intervals between inspections should be within ± 10%.
Supplementary Safety Inspections may be carried out from time to time in response
to complaints or following a report of an accident. These extra inspections shall be
recorded but will not change the normal schedule of inspections.
Table 1. below outlines the inspection frequencies adopted for Islington and should
be read with item 3.4.

4.3 Safety Inspection Methodology
The borough is divided into four inspection zones, north, south, east and west based
on ward areas. Each zone is then divided into twelve areas, with each area
effectively representing a week of inspections. A thirteenth week with no scheduled
inspections completes a thirteen-week (three-monthly) cycle. Alternating halves of
the six monthly inspection regime streets are inspected in each cycle, together with
all of the three monthly streets. Monthly inspections are inserted into the inspection
routine at the appropriate times, although may well not be contained within the area
being walked during that week. Monthly inspections are always carried out on the
fourth day of the month, or the nearest working day if the 4th falls on a non-working
day.
Streets are inspected on foot, with inspectors walking each footway in the same
direction as the traffic. On one-way streets, the street should be walked as though it
was a two way street.
All inspections are recorded on hand held PDAs using a HMIS system (Symology
Insight). The information recorded is up loaded into the Insight database at regular
intervals during the day. Surfaces are spray painted or marked to assist repair staff
in locating the defect.
Refer to diagram 1 on page 45 for a summary of the process involved.

4.4 Items for Inspection
All scheduled safety inspections shall observe defects from the following list of items
of highway inventory (not exhaustive):














private attributes e.g. coal plates, building access hatches, pavement lights,
smoke vents etc.
grass verges
road markings
signs/bollards/illuminated signs/streetlights/signals
safety fencing and barriers
trees and vegetation
steps and handrails
subways
general overview if appropriate
Other details should also be noted on the inspection record, such as:






missing or illegible street nameplates
blocked gullies causing severe flooding
dangerous or defective utility works, openings or reinstatements
dangerous operations by third parties, such as developers
overhanging trees and bushes
dangerous private paving, coal plates and cellar flaps
private forecourts
highway works (including maintenance and utility works)
4.5 Degree of Deficiency
Safety inspections will identify hazardous or potentially hazardous defects.
Examples of defects are listed below as guidance only:




Broken, uneven, rocking or loose paving stones, a sharp vertical 20mm plus
step
Localised footway depressions, pot holes gaps and trips, 20mm plus
Damaged or dislodged kerbs
Flooding making the footway impassable
Broken or seriously dislodged non illuminated bollards and posts
Damaged guard railing that could cause injury to pedestrians or damage to
vehicular traffic
Fly tipped builders rubble
Hazardous posts with signs attached etc., or with low headroom
Mandatory signs facing the wrong way, missing or obscured
Carriageway potholes or localised subsidence above 40mm
Flooding of carriageway causing danger to vulnerable users such as cyclists
Version F July 2013
Page 21



Missing mandatory white carriageway markings
Dangerous trees, loose branches or apparently unstable
Debris, spillage or contamination on running surface
Displaced road studs lying on running surface
Overhead wires damaged or unstable
Damaged and exposed electrical wiring
Apparently slippery surfaces due to spillage etc.
Ironwork (gully lids, manholes etc.) broken or missing
Similar criteria are to be applied to anything else, which is considered to present a
safety hazard or danger to users of the highway.
Many defects are the responsibility of individuals or organisations other than the
Council e.g. private forecourts or utility covers. Unless urgent action is required, the
Inspector will pass on the relevant information to the section or department
responsible and record the action.
Personnel carrying out Safety Inspections should record any utility street works being
undertaken. Any obvious dangerous activity or inadequate signage should be
photographed and reported to the Streetworks section. Refer to the Health and
Safety and Street Works sections of this handbook for further information.
Similarly the Inspector should record works being undertaken on the highway by our
contractors. Any obvious dangerous activity or inadequate signage should be
reported to the engineer in charge of the works. Direct action by the Inspector may
be appropriate in some circumstances, refer to the Health and Safety section of this
handbook for further advice.
All other works carried out on or alongside the highway that pose a hazard to road
users must be recorded and appropriate remedial actions taken. If the third party is
unwilling or unable to rectify the problem, we will implement remedial action as a
recharge.
Intervention Levels
It is impossible to repair all defects in the public highway, and the courts accept this:
“The public must expect minor obstructions in the road and therefore must expect
minor depressions in pavements. A balance between public and private interest
must be found.”
(Mills v Barnsley Metropolitan Council 1992).
The test of whether or not a defect is dangerous is not simply a question of
mechanical measurement. It is also a question of foreseeability. If the defect is left
unrepaired, is it reasonably foreseeable that in the normal course of events accidents
will occur?
Ultimately each particular case is open to interpretation and discretion applied by the
inspector and it is ultimately only the courts that can decide whether or not the defect
should have been foreseen as dangerous. Although it is tempting for the inspector to
take an over-cautious approach this stance should not be taken; rather the inspector
Version F July 2013
Page 22
must apply the guidance given and make a decision based on the particular
circumstances of each case.
The guidelines given in this document are set taking into account a number of legal
precedents and the Code of Practice.
Footway Intervention Level
The following factors must be taken into account before a decision is made whether a
defect is dangerous or is going to foreseeably become dangerous:




Location – is the defect on a normal route for pedestrians. E.g. defect up
hard against a wall will often not be dangerous
Level of pedestrian use and the characteristics of the neighbourhood
Size of the defect
Guidelines of 20mm or above
The inspector will record all defects that require intervention
A defect should not automatically be repaired because an accident has occurred or a
damages claim has been submitted ; e.g. someone trips over a kerb. If the Highway
Inspector considers that the defect is hazardous then repairs will be ordered. Where
a defect is not seen as foreseeably dangerous but a service request for repairs has
been received, then repairs should be ordered as basic customer care.
The minimum clearance height for footways is 2.1 metres although a clearance of 2.3
metres should be achieved wherever possible. In the same way as for other
intervention levels the inspector should apply discretion and take into account other
factors when deciding on an appropriate intervention level for height clearance.
Damaged/missing sections of pedestrian safety fences and guard rails should be
treated as Category 1 defects and made safe within 24 hours, unless damage is
clearly superficial with no loss of integrity of the fence or barrier.
Carriageway Intervention Level
Although in general a less stringent criterion for intervention is used on carriageways
than on footways, a certain amount of discretion should be applied and the following
factors should be taken into account:




Pedestrian Use – is the area used by a large number of pedestrians e.g. a
well-used crossing point either designated or informal
Traffic Profile – factors that will affect both the likelihood of an accident and
the speed at which any defect may deteriorate and become dangerous
Condition of the adjacent surfacing – if the whole carriageway is deteriorating
and is likely to become dangerous before the next inspection then planned
major works may be considered.
Guidelines of 40mm or above
Version F July 2013
Page 23
4.6 Nature of Response
Section 9.4.18 of the code suggests Category definitions based on those used
by the Highways Agency, responsible for motorways and trunk roads. These
do not match the characteristics of Islington’s streets.
In accordance with Appendix B of the code, Islington adopts the following
procedures:
All defects are recorded and categorised as Emergency, Urgent or Planned works:
Emergency – those that require attention within 4 hours because they represent a
significant threat to life and limb.
Urgent - those that require prompt attention within 3 days because if they deteriorate
further, they will become a hazard.
Planned works (non-hazardous defects) – all other defects/planned maintenance
Inspectors should detail the necessary repair response on the inspection report. The
response will be categorised as Emergency, Urgent, or Planned works. Selection will
depend on the discretion of the inspector with due regard to guidance contained
within this document. Inspection reports including Emergency and Urgent works will
be loaded into the Symology Insight HM system at regular intervals during the day.
At the end of each day the Inspectors verify that the data has successfully loaded
onto the system.
Any defects noted for repair as urgent should be discretely marked with white paint
whilst carrying out the inspection. Defects noted for planned works may either be
marked immediately or at a later date depending on the time scale for the repairs.
Following inspections on roads that are not yet adopted for maintenance, any defect
or maintenance requirement is to be referred to the developer for attention.
Defects noted on private forecourts and similar areas adjacent to the adopted
highway should be noted and forwarded to the Streetworks team.
Any encroachment or obstruction onto the highway by privately owned trees, shrubs,
hedges, goods for sale etc. should be noted. Enforcement action shall be taken in
accordance with section 5.
Any defects considered to present a significant danger to the users of the highway
should be dealt with within the relevant response times detailed above, regardless of
whether they are owned by the local authority.
Emergency Response
The Code of Practice defines Category 1 defects as: “Those which require prompt
attention because they represent an immediate or imminent hazard or because there
is a risk of short term structural deterioration.”
The Code of Practice states that “if it is not possible to correct or make safe the
defect at the time of inspection, which will generally be the case, repairs of a
permanent or temporary nature should be carried out as soon as possible and in any
Version F July 2013
Page 24
case within a period of 24 hours. Permanent repair should be carried out within 28
days.”
Islington’s defines Emergency in the same way as the conditions set out in the
Code’s Category 1 description.
The Code sets a target of 24hour response, but due to the nature of Islington’s
highway network and Islington’s commitment to customer services, our target is 4
hours.
In Islington Category 1 defects can be categorised as either Emergency or Urgent
depending on the nature and circumstances of the defect.
Defects requiring an Emergency response will be reported to the Operational Service
(OS) immediately by telephone and recorded on Symology in a similar way to Urgent
defects. The Highway Inspector must stay on site until the defect has been made
safe. The defect may be made safe by using appropriate signing and guarding until
more permanent repairs can be undertaken.
Urgent Response
Urgent defects will be of the type that can be repaired by a single two-man gang with
limited resources, or a multiple of similar gangs in exceptional circumstances.
Repairs may be only temporary in nature. Occasionally, defects will be signed and
guarded until more extensive works can be completed, due to the nature of the
defect.
OS are responsible for making repairs to defects termed as Urgent within 3 working
days.
If the nature of the defect requires a response the next day (but does not require an
Emergency Response) then the Inspector should request an earlier response from
OS.
Where OS are unable to complete a permanent repair they will call upon the
appropriate resources with the aim of carrying out the repairs in 28 days.
Planned response
These works are equivalent to the Code’s Category 2, 28 day responses. However,
due to type of defect, the nature of Islington’s streets, the utility services beneath
them and the traffic levels repairs will be scheduled for an appropriate time which can
be between 1 and 12 months.
Where defects are not considered hazardous but there is a significant risk that the
defect may become hazardous before the next inspection is due, then a planned
maintenance order shall be raised by the inspector. Planned maintenance orders
shall be placed on Symology and issued to the appropriate contractor.
Defects in this category should be included in the programme of planned work. The
Structural Condition Surveys should also be used to inform this programme. As
programmed works are not of an urgent nature due regard must be taken of the
NRSWA, the Traffic Management Act and the need to consult.
Version F July 2013
Page 25
Highway inspectors should not ignore the need for major works and should report
problems to a highway engineer for consideration.
4.7 Defect Risk Assessment
In determining an appropriate response the inspector shall assess the risk as
recommended in the Code of Practice and as outlined below.
Risk Identification
All defects as listed in 4.5 shall be assessed for risk to determine an appropriate
response
Risk evaluation
All risks identified through the inspection process need to be evaluated by assessing
the likely impact should the risk occur and the probability of it actually happening.
Risk Impact
The impact of a risk occurring should be quantified on a scale of 1 to 4 assessed as
follows:




Little or negligible impact
Minor or low impact
Noticeable impact
Major, high or serious impact
The impact is quantified by assessing the extent of damage likely to be caused. As
the impact is likely to increase with increasing speed, the amount of traffic and type
of road are clearly important considerations in the assessment.
Risk Probability
The probability of a risk occurring should also be quantified on a scale of 1 to 4
assessed as follows:




Very low probability
Low probability
Medium probability
High probability
The probability is quantified by assessing the likelihood of users, passing by or over
the defect, encountering the risk. As the probability is likely to increase with
increasing vehicular or pedestrian flow, the network hierarchy and defect location
are, consequently, important considerations in the assessment.
Risk Factor
The risk factor for a particular risk is the product of the risk probability and is
therefore in the range of 1 to 16. It is this factor that identifies the overall
seriousness of the risk and Figure 1Table 2 the speed of response to remedy the
defect. Accordingly, the priority response time for dealing with a defect can be
determined by correlation with the risk factor, as shown in Risk Matrix in table
2 below.

Score 16
Coloured Lilac – Emergency Response
4.8 Flexibility of Inspections
It is essential that safety inspections are carried out on time and there is to be zero
tolerance of missed inspections. Good time keeping is key to ensure that realistic
inspection routes are in place.
Symology automatically generates safety Inspection programmes on a weekly basis.



Monthly inspections must be carried out within 5 working days of their due
date
Three monthly inspections must be carried out within10 working days (either
side) of their due date
Six monthly inspections must be carried out within 10 working days (either
side) of their due date
If a safety inspection cannot be completed within these timescales, due to inclement
weather (e.g. snow or leaf fall), then this must be confirmed on the safety inspection
record. The site must be revisited and inspected as soon as the weather improves.
Under no circumstances must the inspection be missed.
Failure to re-visit the site effectively means that the safety inspection has been
missed and this will have a direct impact on the Council’s ability to successfully
defend negligence claims.
The Highways Maintenance Manager is responsible for carrying out audits, at least
once per month, to validate that Inspections have been completed on time. Appendix
1 details the Highway Safety Inspection Audit Process.
Version F July 2013

4.9 Mobility
The Disability Discrimination Act 1995 (DDA) came into full force on 01 October 2004
and requires a greater focus on the needs of the mobility impaired, including the
partially sighted and wheel chair users.
A minimum width of 1.2 metres is required to allow a wheel chair to pass between
obstructions, although a 2 metres width is recommended.
Any obstructions that may hinder the mobility impaired or those with impaired vision
should be noted. The Street Works inspectors control tables ,chairs and A-boards
on the highway and any problems observed, as part of the Safety Inspection should
be passed to them.
All footways should have a minimum headroom clearance of 2.1 metres (preferably
2.3 metres) and any potential obstructions above ground, such as low branches,
over-hanging hedges and low signs must be noted on the inspection and dealt with.
Pavement cross falls are also important to wheelchair users; cross falls exceeding
10%, even over a short distance, will prevent a wheel chair user getting onto the
pavement, having crossed the road.
Bollards must have a minimum height of 1metre and litterbins etc. must be at least
1.3 metres high and be continuous from the ground. They should be positioned in
line with other street furniture. Partially sighted users of the highway rely on the
continuity of street furniture.
Maintaining access is important for disabled drivers and particular attention should be
given to disabled parking bays together with associated road markings and signage.
It is essential that the needs of the mobility impaired be taken into account when
considering the degree of deficiency and appropriate response to defects.
Version F July 2013
Page 28
4.10 Trees
Greenspace, the Council’s parks and recreation service, inspects trees on or
adjacent to the highway. However highway inspectors should record obvious
dangers whilst carrying out the normal safety inspections. The inspectors should note
any encroachment or visibility obstruction and any obvious damage, ill health or trip
hazard.
The Code of Practice defines Highway Trees as all trees within falling distance of the
highway and states that inspections should include all Highway Trees. In England
the Highway Authority is responsible for ensuring that trees outside the boundary, but
within falling distance, are safe.
In particular inspectors should record details of trees:
 Considered to be dangerous
 With roots likely to cause a trip hazard
 With roots causing damage to paved areas
 Obstructing the highway
 Obstructing sight lines
 Obstructing road signs
Where branches are below 5.5 m in height over the carriageway or 2.5 m over the
footway, then the risk to users of the highway needs to be sensibly assessed.
Liaison with bus companies may be appropriate to determine whether overhanging
branches are causing a particular problem to buses. Where pruning works are
considered necessary recommendation should be made to Greenspace.
All defects should be passed to Greenspace for attention. If the Highway Inspector is
in any doubt as to whether a tree is actually a danger, advice should be sought from
Greenspace.
Where trees pose an immediate danger Greenspace must be informed immediately
by telephone. The inspector must treat the danger as an emergency defect and the
response as set out in 4.6 should apply; this will include staying on site to protect
users of the highway as necessary. If Greenspace are unable to provide an
emergency response for any reason then the highway must be protected by
appropriate signs and barriers; in extreme cases the road should to be closed with a
temporary diversion put in place.
There are no formal inspections of privately owned trees adjacent to the highway.
However, any private trees noticed by the inspector whilst carrying out his
inspections, which are considered to be a danger to users of the highway, must be
reported and the Highways Service will take appropriate action.
Notices can be served on the owners of trees considered to be dangerous under
section 154 of the Highways Act 1980, giving 14 days’ notice for the works to be
carried. In law the works can be done in default and the cost claimed from the
owner, although in practice this is likely to be problematic.
If the ownership of a tree, hedge or shrub cannot be established easily, usually within
5 days, then a Section 154 notice can be placed on or adjacent to the trees (see
section 5).

5. ENFORCEMENT
5.1 Introduction
Within the Highways service, enforcement is split across different sections including,
Highway Maintenance and Streetworks.
Enforcement most commonly falls under the New Roads and Street works Act
(NRSWA), the Traffic Management Act (TMA) or the Highways Act 1980.
This section deals with the Highways Act enforcement only, refer to section 6 for
NRSWA and TMA enforcement.
Islington Council is the Highway Authority for the borough except the Transport for
London Road Network TLRN (managed directly by Transport for London).
The Highway Authority has a duty under section 130 of the Highways Act 1980 to
assert and protect the rights of the public for the use and enjoyment of any highway
for which they are the Highway Authority.
Enforcement can be pursued in four ways:




Direct action to remove the obstruction
Prosecution
Serving notice on the person responsible, to take action within a given time,
followed by prosecution if they fail to act
Serving notice on the person responsible, to take action within a given time,
arranging for the works to be completed on a rechargeable basis if they fail to
act
Under common law anything that interferes with the right to pass along the public
highway is deemed an obstruction that must be removed. However certain statutory
provisions allow for certain facilities such as street furniture, bus shelters etc. to be
placed by the highway authority and other bodies.
Section 115B of the Highways Acts 1980 provides power to councils to place certain
items on the highway e.g. recreation facilities, centres for information/advice, trees
etc.
5.2 The Highways Act
The following paragraphs outline some of the more useful sections of the Highways
Act 1980. Legal advice should be sought before taking any legal action. Some
powers may only be used by the Head of service or under his delegated authority.
The “authority” always refers to the Highway Authority, in this case the London
Borough of Islington.
Section 131 – Penalty for damaging the highway
If a person without lawful authority or excuse




Makes a ditch or excavation in a highway, comprising a carriageway
Deposits anything whatsoever on a highway so as to cause damage
Lights a fire
Pulls down or obliterates a lawfully placed sign, milestone or directions post
Version F July 2013
Page 31
He is guilty of an offence.
No powers to take direct action. The authority may only pursue a fine. Therefore this
section is rarely used in practice. Refer to sections 133 or 333, which give the option
of rechargeable direct action.
In some cases permission is given to organisations to fit temporary signs to street
furniture and signs, therefore Inspectors need to check permission has not been
granted if necessary.
Section 132 – Unauthorised marks on the highway
If any person without lawful authority or excuse:


Paints upon any part of the highway
Fixes any picture/notice to any tree/structure on the highway
He is guilty of an offence and liable to a fine.
The authority uses this section extensively as it gives the power to remove signs
without notice, if they are fixed to the highway or to a structure within it. It is under
these powers that fly posters are often removed.
The authority may remove any mark or sign described above without reference to the
apparent owner.
It is unusual to apprehend those responsible in committing the offence so legal action
under this section is rare.
The removal of notices not fixed to the highway can be addresses by immediate
action on a rechargeable basis under section 149 of the Act.
Section 133 – Damage to footways of streets by excavations
If a footway is damaged by
 Any excavation on adjoining land
 Work done on adjoining land
 Unauthorised excavation on the footway
The authority may make good the damage and recover reasonable costs from the
owner of the land or person responsible.
The authority should allow the people responsible to undertake the work themselves,
by using an accredited contractor, but the authority may then make a supervision
charge.
It is important that in such cases prompt action is taken and accurate records are
kept.
Section 137 – Penalty for wilful obstruction
An obstruction is “anything which stops any person or vehicle from passing safely
along the width or height of the highway”.
All obstructions identified whilst carrying out safety inspections, or inspection
following a report from the public, should be removed by direct action. The priority
Version F July 2013
Page 32
given to removal should depend on the inconvenience and/or hazard the obstruction
is causing.
Legal action should be considered where repetitive obstructions occur and are
considered to be wilful. There is no need to prove that anyone has been
inconvenienced.
Powers also exist under this section of the act to apply to the court for civil injunctions
to prevent repetitive abusers.
Section 149 – Removal of things so deposited on the highway as to be a
nuisance
If anything is placed on the highway as to cause a nuisance the authority may serve
notice on the person who deposited it there, requiring them to remove it.
If the person fails to comply with the notice than the authority may apply to the
magistrate’s court for a removal and deposit order (not recommended).
Alternatively, and more usefully, if the item is considered to present a danger
to users of the highway (and any item on the highway which is unlit at night
would present a danger) then the object may be removed without delay and
costs recovered from the person(s) responsible if known.

(Note: this section should not be used for removal of abandoned vehicles,
rather use the Refuse Disposal (Amenity) Act 1978 or the Clean
Neighbourhoods and Environment Act 2005)
Section 152 – Powers as to removal of projections from buildings
The authority may serve notice on the owner and/or occupier of any building
requiring him to remove or alter any porch, shed, projecting window, step, cellar,
cellar door, cellar window, sign, signpost, sign iron, show board, window shutter, wall,
gate, fence or other projection which obstructs the safe or convenient passage along
a street.
However the owner/occupier may appeal.
Subject to any order made on appeal, if a person fails to comply with a notice served
on him within 14 days, from the date of the service of the notice, he is guilty of an
offence and may be fined.
The authority may also remove the obstruction to which the notice relates and
recover the costs from the person responsible.
Before taking action under this section of the Highways Act the inspector should
liaise with the building control officers and determine whether it would be more
advisable for the authority to take action under section 78 of the Building Act 1984
which gives power to the Local Authority to remove dangers over hanging the
highway without notice.
Section 153 – Doors etc. in streets not to open outwards
No door, gate or bar that opens outwards on a street on any premises shall be put up
without the consent on the authority.
The authority may serve notice on the occupier/owner to remove the obstruction.
Version F July 2013
Page 33
However the owner/occupier may appeal.
Subject to any order made on appeal, if a person fails to comply with a notice served
on him within 8 days, from the date of the service of the notice, he is guilty of an
offence and may be fined.
The authority may also remove the obstruction to which the notice relates and
recover the costs from the person responsible (in practice this would cause serious
practical difficulties).
Section 154 Cutting or felling etc. trees etc. that overhang or are a danger to
roads and footpaths
Where a hedge, tree or shrub, including vegetation of any description, overhangs the
highway so as to endanger or obstruct the passage of vehicles or pedestrians to
which the public has access or obstructs or interferes with view of drivers of vehicles
or the light from a public lamp or where a hedge, tree or shrub, including vegetation
of any description is considered by the Highway Authority to be dead, diseased,
damaged or insecurely rooted and is likely to cause danger by falling on the highway,
the authority responsible for the highway may serve notice on the owner of the
hedge, tree or shrub or to the occupier of the land on which it is growing requiring
him to remove the danger within 14 days of the date of the service of the notice.
A person, if so aggrieved, may appeal against the notice to a Magistrates Court.
Subject to any order made on appeal, if a person fails to comply with a notice served
on him the authority may carry out the work required by the notice and recover the
reasonable costs from the person responsible.
It is often difficult to determine ownership of land or responsibility for trees/ hedges
etc. and serving of a section 297 notice requiring the occupier to provide this
information may be useful.
Notice can be served on the site by placing notice to the tree (tape or glue, do not
use nails).
There are no powers to take immediate action, if the tree is considered an imminent
danger to the users of the highway, then an emergency road closure should be
arranged with urgent works arranged on a rechargeable basis under section 333 of
the Highways Act.
In all cases advice must be obtained from the Council’s Tree Officers before taking
any action.
Section 163 – Prevention of Water Falling onto or flowing onto a footway
The authority may serve notice on an occupier/owner of premises adjoining the
highway, giving 28 day’s notice, within which time he must take measures to prevent

6. STREETWORKS INSPECTIONS
6.1 Introduction
The increase in the number of works promoters licensed to lay mains and cables,
within our streets, brings with it the increased potential for conflict between works
promoters who have the statutory rights to use the streets for provision of essential
services, highways maintenance and highway users.
It is important that the safe and efficient movement of traffic, pedestrians and cyclists
is maintained in Islington. The inspections listed below which are the responsibility of
Islington's Streetworks Section under the New Roads and Streetworks Act 1991
(NRSWA) and the Highways Act 1980 are carried out in order to avoid unnecessary
disruption and inconvenience to our highway users.
Islington has been a founder member of the London Permit Scheme set up under the
Traffic Management Act. Our permit system is set out in SI2009/3180 The Traffic
Management (London Borough of Islington) Permit Scheme Order.
The scheme compliments NRSWA whose principal sections are set out below.
Sample inspections
Section 65 and 75 of NRSWA used to monitor the overall performance of a works
promoter
Defect Inspections
Section 72 of NRSWA in place to identify defective reinstatements, which do not
comply with specification
Overstay Inspections
Section 74 of NRSWA identifies prolonged occupation of the public highway and
works promoters are charged accordingly (100% of works in Islington are inspected)
Inspections of works promoters plant (Section 81)
Section 81 of NRSWA applies to a works promoter’s plant that is found to be
defective (inspected and reported as necessary)
Licence Inspections
Highways Act 1980 Sections 169, 171 and 172 skips, builders materials, scaffolds,
hoarding and tables and chairs - applies to lawful and unlawful interference with
highways and streets.
6.2 Sample Inspections
This is the procedure by which Streetworks Inspectors can regularly establish the
overall performance of each works promoter operating in Islington.
It involves inspection of a structured random sample of works at various stages
during the works and reinstatement guarantee period. It will enable the Streetworks
Version F July 2013
Page 37
section to monitor the level of compliance with the relevant prescribed standards in
the Codes of Practice for Inspections as laid out in the New Roads and Streetworks
Act 1991. The Streetworks Inspector should also check that the works promoter is
complying with his duty under section 67 of the New Roads and Streetworks Act in
relation to qualifications for persons as supervisors and operatives.
There are three categories of sample inspections A, B and C. These stages have
been identified at which significant information on works promoters performance can
be obtained in accordance to the New Roads and Streetworks Act 1991.
Inspection category A
This is undertaken during the progress of the works. Inspections in Category A
cannot be selected and programmed because of the practical difficulties of
coordinating the movements of inspectors with the activities on work sites.
Consequently, Islington's Streetworks inspectors are responsible for selecting sites to
visit; ensuring as random a sample as is practicable, including works in all types of
streets as appropriate.
Upon locating an open excavation the Inspector must find the notice for the
works on the Highway Management system in our case Symology's Insight.
A pass or fail of the site must be recorded and subsequently sent to the works
promoter.
If the site passes the inspection, no further action is necessary.
If the site fails the inspection and no one is on site the inspector should
determine whether the site has higher or lower risk inadequacies.
Lower risk inadequacies - by the end of the next working day the works
promoter must be notified of the problem and has 4 hours to rectify the matter
from this time. If the works promoter does not respond the Islington's Highway
Operations Service (OS) must be called upon to put things right and recharge
the utility and inform them of the charge.
Higher risk inadequacies - the works promoter must be contacted by a logged
telephone call and electronically, ensure a name is obtained from the person
you are reporting to and a reference number if available. The works promoter
has 2 hours to respond. . If the works promoter does not respond then
Islington's Highway Operations Service (OS) must be called upon to put
things right and recharge the works promoter and inform them of the charge.
If a site is deemed to be far too dangerous and needs to be made safe immediately
the Highway Operations Service (OS) should be contacted, the works promoter must
be informed of this action and recharged accordingly.
Photographic evidence needs to be obtained by the inspector to support this action.
Inspection category B
This is undertaken within the first six months following permanent reinstatement and
all inspections are randomly selected by the highway management system.
A pass or fail of the site must be recorded following an inspection and
subsequently sent to the works promoter.
Version F July 2013
Page 38
If the site passes the inspection it must be recorded on the inspectors
Personal Digital Assistant (PDA) and later uploaded onto Insight. No further
action is required.
If the site fails the inspection the inspector must record the information using
their PDA giving the reason(s) why and request a joint inspection from the
works promoter responsible. When the PDA is uploaded onto Symology the
data recorded will automatically be sent to the appropriate works promoter
and all further inspections of the site will be generated automatically by the
system, until the site has been passed.
Inspection category C
This is undertaken within the three months preceding the end of the guarantee period
and all inspections are randomly selected by the highway management system.
A pass or fail of the site must be recorded following an inspection and
subsequently sent to the works promoter.
If the site passes the inspection it must be recorded on the inspectors PDA
(Personal Digital Assistant) and later uploaded onto Insight. No further action
is required.
If the site fails the inspection the inspector must record the information using
their PDA giving the reason(s) why and request a joint inspection from the
works promoter responsible. When the PDA is uploaded onto Symology the
data recorded will automatically be sent to the appropriate works promoter
and all further inspections of the site will be generated automatically by the
system, until the site has been passed.
6.3 Defect/Routine Inspections
Defect inspections are concerned with reinstatement defects such as old interim
reinstatements or reinstatements that do not meet the specification as laid out in the
codes of practice i.e. road markings that have not been replaced or inadequacies
with signing, lighting and guarding.
In order to combat the problem streetworks inspectors carry out routine inspections
on a street-by-street basis, as well as responding to customer complaints. Any
expired interim reinstatements or trenches that do not meet specification as noted in
the codes of practice must be reported to the appropriate works promoter in the
following manner.
Insight must be interrogated in order to find a notice that relates to the defect
found.
If a notice is found a routine inspection must be recorded giving the reason(s)
for the failure and a request for a joint inspection with the works promoter
responsible must be made.
If following a thorough search of Symology Insight a notice still cannot be
found Streetworks Administration should be asked to create an un-attributable
works notice upon which the defect will be failed.
Version F July 2013
Page 39
Once a site has been failed, Insight will automatically generate all further
inspections on the date due until a pass is recorded.
If a works promoter does not take responsibility for a defected trench a trial hole
should be organised.
Agree a date with Streetworks administration, who will inform all works promoters
giving each at least 10 working days’ notice of when the trial hole is due to take place
and inform OS. (Remind them that the appropriate signing and guarding, tools and
personal protective equipment are imperative).
All trial hole dates must be placed on the Streetworks calendar.
When plant or ducting is exposed and can be identified, the Streetworks inspector
takes photographs and records a failure on their PDA using the procedures noted
above. The works promoter responsible should then be recharged accordingly via the
Streetworks administration section.
All defect reinstatement photographs must be attached to the notice it relates to on
Symology Insight.
6.4 Overstay Inspections
Each notice submitted by a works promoter has an end date; if the works promoter is
still on site after this date Section 74 charges apply.
All Section 74 inspections must be prompted manually on Symology Insight
on a daily basis using the ‘closure’s due’ report.
The inspections must also be downloaded onto the inspectors PDA.
If the site is found to be closed and clear upon inspection it must be recorded
on the PDA as a pass and no further action is required.
If the site is not closed or clear it fails the Section 74 inspection, this must be
recorded on the PDA and the site must be photographed from at least two
different angles, ensuring that the works promoters courtesy board (if being
used) is in the picture along with some sort of landmark, (preferably a street
nameplate) so there can be no question of the location of the site.
Upon return to the office all inspections must be uploaded onto Insight
(presuming that this has not been done wirelessly from site). Any inspection
that has been recorded on the PDA as a failure will automatically be
prompted for inspection on the next working day.
On the first day of a site failing a Section 74 inspection the works promoter
must be sent a 'charging started' notification electronically, which must also
be printed.
Photographs taken must be downloaded and placed on the Streetworks
network drive in the photo's folder and labeled. One photo of the site must
then be inserted onto a template with the appropriate local authority reference
number, date and location. TWO colour copies of this must be printed and
signed.
Version F July 2013
Page 40
A progress sheet must then be filled in and placed in a plastic pocket along
with the inspection sheet, Charging Started Notification and two signed colour
photographs. Each subsequent inspection of the site must be placed in the
same plastic pocket with two signed colour photos and the progress sheet
completed daily until the site is closed and clear.
6.5 Inspections of Works Promoters Plant (Section 81)
This is carried out on a reactive basis following complaints or whilst on daily duties.
If any works promoters plant is found to be defective details giving the location, works
promoter and fault should be passed to Streetworks Administration, who will log the
details and send the information to the relevant works promoter.
If the works promoters’ plant is deemed to be too dangerous and requires immediate
attention, OS should be contacted to make the location safe. The works promoter
must be informed and recharged accordingly. A photograph must be taken of the
defective pant.
No further action is required the works promoters plant is their responsibility.

displays any other obvious visual defect. Operatives carry out daylight
inspections during normal maintenance activities.
All faults are logged onto a Management Information database.
Faults will occur between inspections and very often residents will report these faults.
Council officers may also identify any faults whilst carrying out other
activities/inspections on the public highway.

BRIDGE INSPECTIONS
8.1 Introduction
Bridges form a key part of the highway system by nature of their strategic location
and because of the consequences when they fail or when their capacity is reduced.
Inspection is an essential part of bridge maintenance and must be conducted
systematically and not just confined to those occasions when there is a breakdown or
failure. The emphasis of all bridge inspection and maintenance is on public safety
and prolonging the economic life of the structure.
Note that a ‘highway structure’ is a structure either over, under or adjacent to a public
highway that may at any time be expected to withstand the effects of vehicular and/or
pedestrian loading. Bridges therefore fall into the category of highway structures.
There are also a number of structures owned by London Underground Limited,
Network Rail, British Waterways and Transport for London. A list of the borough’s
highway structures is included within the HMIS.
8.2 Inspection
To ensure that these structures are maintained to the highest standard, it is essential
that their condition is reviewed and monitored on a regular basis. It is recommended
that the Department for Transport’s (DfT) standards are adopted for inspection and
reporting with the following frequency:
Principal Inspections (PI)
Version F July 2013
-
6 yearly**
Page 54
General Inspections (GI)
2 yearly
Superficial Inspections (SI) Yearly
Special Inspections
Ad hoc
** Under certain circumstances this may be extended
It is vital that the right information is collected, stored and used in the correct way.
The computerised bridge management system used by Islington and many London
boroughs is BridgeStation. Each authority operates a separate installation of
BridgeStation and shares their respective data centrally for the purposes of annual
funding bids. In the future this record may be stored centrally on a web-based
system. This software enables prioritised programmes of work to be produced by
each borough and provides additional facilities for the effective management of
structures.
8.3 Inspection Types
Principal Inspections – 6 yearly
This level of inspection requires a close examination (within touching distance) of all
inspectable parts of the structure, and normally requires access equipment and both
destructive and non-destructive testing.
General Inspections – 2 yearly
This consists of a visual inspection of all external parts of the structure. Access
equipment may be required in some cases.
Superficial Inspections – Yearly
This type of inspection consists of a cursory check for obvious deficiencies, which
might lead to traffic accidents or high maintenance costs.
Special Inspections – Ad hoc
A special inspection may be required for the following reasons:
To investigate a specific problem that has been found.
Structures that are either weight restricted, cast iron or have been subject to impact
or fire damage.
Before and after the passage of abnormally heavy loads on a structure that has been
proved sub-standard by calculation.
8.4 Reporting
Recording the results of inspections and reporting is carried out with the aid of
BridgeStation. Part of this process is the calculation of the Bridge Condition Index for
each structure, generally carried out following General Inspection. Bridge Condition
Indices must be produced annually based on the condition data and test results
collected in any financial year.
A flowchart to illustrate process of highway structure maintenance management is
included in Diagram 2 overleaf:

APPENDIX 1.
Highway Safety Inspections Audit Process
To be read in conjunction with section 4.7
Weekly
Each Monday the Highways Maintenance Manager shall arrange to run a report from
Symology showing any outstanding inspections from the previous week. Any
outstanding inspections shall be brought to the attention of the relevant Highway
Inspector. Outstanding inspections must be completed as a priority. Monthly
inspections must take the highest priority as these have the least tolerance in
timescale.
Monthly
Each calendar month the Highways Maintenance Manager shall arrange to run a
report from Symology to indicate the percentage of inspections carried out within the
tolerated timescales as laid down in the Highway Inspector’s Handbook.
The aim is to achieve 100% of inspections within the agreed timescale.
Monthly
Each month the Highways Maintenance Manager shall select one road per inspector
from the roads completed within the previous week. The manager shall walk the
road/section of road with the inspector and validate the data. The manager shall
highlight any defects that have been missed by the inspector.
The aim is to achieve on-going improvement in the accuracy, timing and completion
of the inspections to ensure the Council minimises the risk of successful liability
claims.

Appendix 4 Inspection Method
1.
Inspection Techniques
1.1 Inspections should be carried out using the any of
the procedures set out below.
1.2 Inspectors are expected to select the appropriate
procedure to suit the characteristics of the street.
1.3 A situation may require an inspection to branch
off into a side road, using the same inspection
regime and re-join the main route to continue the
inspection for that road.
2.
2.1
Single Inspector
An Inspector will start their inspection on one side of
the footway at one end of the street as illustrated in
Cartoon 1.
2.2 They will:
 walk the whole length of the street inspecting and
logging all defects
 the footway on one side and half of the carriageway
into the centre line is inspected
 defects are recorded on the on the hand-held device
 all defects will be marked with a white spray paint to
clearly identify them for the repair
 carriageway inspections will be undertaken by
walking between parked cars approximately every
5 to 6 meters/or every two bays in length – looking
left and right and across to the other side before
Cartoon 1 - A Single
returning to the footway. They will walk the same route Inspector route
back onto the footway as taken to inspect the
carriageway to ensure no defects are missed.
 On the returning across the carriageway the inspector will repeatedly look
behind to ensure nothing has been missed or shows a different appearance
from a different position
2.3 Once back onto the pavement, the inspector will repeatedly look back
before continuing on his way. Once at the end of the street the inspector
will cross over and repeat the process on the other side.
For current highway status see the electronic version
3.
Two Inspectors
3.1 Two inspectors carry out their inspections on either
side of the street repeating the same process as a
single inspector at the same time using one hand
held device.
3.2 A Joint inspection with inspectors on either side of
street is carried out exactly in the same way as a
single inspector but with only one inspector using the
hand held device.
3.3 The system does not allow two devices in one street
working at the same time**.
3.4 Before the inspection starts a note is recorded on
the hand held device as an observation, that two
inspectors are present and the name of the other
inspector.
3.5 Both inspectors will start their inspection on either
side of the footway at one end of the street. Each
Inspector will start their inspection on one side of the
footway at one end of the street as illustrated in
Cartoon 2.
3.6 They will:
 walk the whole length of the street inspecting and
logging all defects
 the footway on one side and half of the carriageway into
the centre line is inspected
 defects are recorded on the on the hand-held device
 all defects will be marked with a white spray paint to clearly
Cartoon 2 - A Two
identify them for the repair
Inspector route
 carriageway inspections will be undertaken by walking
between parked cars approximately every 5 to 6 meters/or
every two bays in length – looking left and right and across to the other
side before returning to the footway. They will walk the same route back
onto the footway as taken to inspect the carriageway to ensure no defects
are missed.
 On the returning across the carriageway the inspector will repeatedly look
behind to ensure nothing has been missed or shows a different
appearance from a different position
3.7 Once back onto the pavement, the inspector will repeatedly look back
before continuing on his way. Once at the end of the street the inspector
will cross over and repeat the process on the other side.
3.8 The person holding the device will be the person who is logged into the
system and who will be responsible for recording all the defects for
repair or make safe.
3.9 The other inspector will be verbally relaying the information at the time
the defect is found.
For current highway status see the electronic version
3.10 Both inspectors will stop and communicate either across the street or the
inspector without the handheld device will walk over to the other so that
information is logged as the defect is found.
3.11 This inspector will use the same route back to the exact location where
they originally found the defect. The inspection again will continue as
detailed above
** technology conflicts do not allow multiple data for one street to be
entered into the system at the same time
4
Joint Inspection
4.1 On wider roads and where appropriate, two inspectors may inspect
jointly on the same footway, with one inspector looking at footway and
logging information and other inspector looking at both footway and
carriageway to the centre of the carriageway.
4.2 A Joint inspection with inspectors on the same side is carried out with
one inspector holding the handheld device and inspecting the footway
only and the other inspecting exactly in the same way as a single
inspector.
4.3 Both inspectors will be inspecting the same area at the same time.
4.4 Before the inspection starts a note is logged under observations that two
inspectors are present and the name of the other inspector.
4.5 Both inspectors will start their inspection on the footway at one end of
the street or at the section when the street is split.
5
Photography
5.1 Photo images are not part of the routine inspection process.
5.2 Inspectors should be prepared to take photographs in certain situations,
such as:



where extensive or exceptional repairs are called for;
where there is significant vehicle or tree root damage and
where the images will help to explain situations or assist in planning
remedial works.
5.3 Images should be stored using the location as the first part of the title to
assist storage and recovery.
