Request For Street Repairs – Kirklees Area We have received your request and would like to thank you for contacting us.
The council has a statutory duty, under Section 41 of the Highways Act 1980, to look after roads and pavements that are maintainable at public expense. These roads and pavements are inspected by trained highway engineers monthly, quarterly or once a year – depending on how much they are used.
We carry out these regular inspections to make sure that roads and pavements are safe for everyone, and to identify any defects that need to be repaired. Areas of erosion and minor bumps may not look great but, unless they pose a danger to the public, they will not be repaired at this time.
The time it takes for repairs to be undertaken depends on safety implications and how much the road or pavement is used. Repairs may be carried out within 24 hours if urgent, or within eight weeks if not so urgent. We also have a rolling planned maintenance programme for work such as road resurfacing and footway improvement works.
We hope that this information helps answer your query. With limited budgets, the service cannot carry out inspections in response to individual requests but our routine inspections will pick up any problems and we will act as appropriate. Inevitably, there will be times when an urgent defect appears between inspections and the defect requires immediate repair, please ring: 01484 414700 and an engineer will visit the location as a matter of urgency.
Yours sincerely Streetscene & Housing Customer Services
