Supporting an asset management approach

The Council is committed to having the best road condition for the investment available, and supports an asset management based approach for the maintenance of the highway network. This means that East Sussex Highways follows the nationally adopted Highway Asset Management Policy, Strategy and Plans which looks at the overall condition of the network from further decline.

We also have to consider what is the best use of our resources, as it is more cost effective to invest some of our funding in preventative maintenance and larger scale road repairs that reduce the chance of potholes occurring in the first place. This is why we do not always repair some of the smaller potholes on a road whilst we are there repairing the larger ones.
