The statutory duty to maintain adopted roads and paths (the highway) within Lincolnshire.
Lincolnshire County Council has a statutory duty to maintain adopted roads and paths (the Highway) within the county.
Grass verges adjacent to carriageways and footways are generally maintained within the public highway.
Most grass verges are within the public highway and come under the responsibility of the Highway Authority.
Maintenance of the highway includes making safe potentially dangerous defect such as potholes.
Drainage systems remove water from the highway to provide a safe passage for all.
Report highway defects and make general highway enquiries online, by telephone or in writing.
Lincolnshire County Council Highways Alliance is an innovative new form of contract.
Where a landowner removes potentially dangerous roadside trees, there is a general amenity loss, as well as a reduction in wildlife habitat.
Each year we maintain the county’s 5,500 miles of roads with an extensive programme of patching.
