  • Not all bridges and structures in Buckinghamshire are the responsibility Highways, other bodies that own bridges and structures include:

  • Network Rail: structures associated with the ‘live’railway
  • National Highways: Motorways
  • Canal and River Trust
  • Rights of Way
  • We undertake annual inspections of structures on the Highway that we are responsible for, including special inspections if needed (e.g., collision damage), we also carry out regular maintenance, along with strengthening works to keep our bridges and structures safe and operational, with a minimum of disruption.

    The structures team will carry out an assessment of the bridge and if is our responsibility we will arrange for a site inspection and raise an order to carry out any works required.

    If the bridge is not the responsibility of Buckinghamshire Highways we will forward this report to the relevant organisation.
