Details of inspections provided below:-
The only survey data DCC holds on this road is Road Condition Survey data – details provided below:-
The C429 has been surveyed using SCANNER (Surface Condition Assessment for the National Network of Roads) by WDM Ltd every other year since 2006, this is in line with government requirements for national reporting of the RCI (Road Condition Index) i.e. 50% of the C Class network surveyed in one direction each year, video images collected with SCANNER are held from the 2010 survey onwards.
Prior to this we hold CVI (Coarse Visual Inspection) for 2000,2001,2002,2003.
Traffic Speed Condition Surveys (TRACS) were introduced on the trunk road network in England in 2000. Work was undertaken in 2003 to consider whether, in principle, the TRACS technology could be adapted for use on local authority roads ( TRACS TYPE SURVEYS FOR LOCAL ROADS). On the basis of the scoping study, Ministers agreed a £3.6 million programme to develop the technology. The implementation project was managed on behalf of the Roads Board by the Halcrow Group.
Local authorities in England commissioned the first TRACS Type Surveys (TTS) on local roads in 2004/05, covering their principal (A) roads. The results from TTS surveys were reported as BV(96) in 2005.Following the first round of research completed during 2004, a revised specification was introduced under the name of SCANNER (Surface Condition Assessment for the National Network of Roads).
The introduction of SCANNER technology on local authority roads was overseen by the SCANNER Implementation Group, on behalf of the Roads Board. The new specification expanded the application of traffic speed carriageway condition surveys to include all road types and surveys covering B and C class roads in England commenced in 2005/06. Details of the research programme undertaken to adapt the technology for use on local roads are here.
With the introduction of the new specification, SCANNER surveys became mandatory for the assessment of the classified road network. Advice for local authorities on procuring SCANNER surveys is here.
The results from SCANNER surveys were originally reported as BV223 (principal roads) and BV224a (non-principal classified roads), then from 2008/09 as National Indicators NI168 (A roads) and NI169 (other classified roads). As of 2011 the National Indicator set was abolished and replaced by the Single Data List where the former National Indicators 168 and 169 are listed as 130-01 and 130-02 respectively.
SCANNER surveys are carried out by commercial survey companies, using equipment which has passed an acceptance test and has an accreditation certificate. Details of the acceptance testing and accreditation process are here. The surveys are also carried out under a quality assurance and audit regime. Details of the quality assurance and audit regime are here.
5. All resulting actions taken from any survey.
Road Condition Data is used to report back to central government.
No direct action is taken from this survey type, however, the data may be used in other forms to help identify locations for potential schemes broadly in-line with DCC Highway Asset Management Plan.
Safety inspections undertaken and resultant actions are provided in response to question 4 above.
6. Vehicle data gathered for Devon Highways ENQ 181116022? Including number, type and average speeds of vehicle using the road.”
There was no data obtained for this Enquiry number, however, we have checked whether there is any average speed data held for this road, and can confirm that there is no information held.
