1. Moray Council does not have a ‘Highway Safety Inspection Manual’. Safety inspection guidance is already covered nationally by the ‘Well Maintained Highways’ Code of Practice, and is then supplemented in Moray with additional information (e.g. inspection frequencies, intervention levels etc) within our Road Asset Management Plan which is available on our website.

2. The current ‘Well Maintained Highways’ Code of Practice is the 2005 version, updated in 2013. Our Road Asset Management Plan was published in February 2012.

3. The National Code of Practice is not our document to update, but any changes to it would be well publicised and our supplementary guidance would be reviewed at that time and updated as necessary.

4. N/A.

5. Moray Council does not have such a procedure documented.

6. N/A.
