Adopted roads and structures

New highways and structures may be adopted by the county council once they meet the standards agreed with developers, under Section 38 of the Highways Act 1980.

If adopted, they are maintained by the Lincolnshire County Council Highways Alliance - a partnership between Kier, WSP, Dynniq and the Council's Highways Department.

The current contract has been in place since 1 April 2010 and may continue until March 2020.

For information about adopted highways and boundaries in Lincolnshire, call 01522 782070. You can also download a list of publicly maintainable highways at the bottom of the page.


The County Council inspects and maintains the majority of bridges, culverts, subways, footbridges, retaining walls which affect the highway.

Most structures are routinely inspected every two years with a more detailed inspection every six years. Highways retaining walls are only inspected every six years.


We will only accept reports that are our responsibility. We do not maintain:

Other owners of structures may include the Environment Agency, Canal and Rivers Trust and Internal Drainage Boards.
