A highway condition survey undertaken by Beacon Transport Planning on behalf of CEMEX UK has enabled a planning condition attached to a consent for minerals extraction, processing and infilling to be successfully discharged.
The survey, covering approximately 1.4km of highway, identified 67 existing highway defects and provides protection to the client against possible future claims for highway damage resulting from vehicle movements associated with the operation of the site.
The survey comprised a visual, above-ground inspection of the public highway, with a concise description, WGS co-ordinates, OSBG36 grid-referenced locations and photographic evidence recorded for each identified defect and presented within a survey report. Defect locations were additionally plotted using detailed OS mapping, shown by appended plans.
The survey was approved by the Highway Authority without amendment.
