Highway defect

The London Borough of Bexley is responsible for keeping roads and footways in a safe condition for highway users, whilst ensuring that disruption to the public is kept to a minimum where-ever possible.

Bexley's roads and footways can be damaged in a number of ways, including:

  • Wear and tear from high traffic levels on busy roads
  • Statutory works i.e. repairs to water, gas and electricity supplies
  • Wearing out through the effects of natural weathering
  • Damage to footways by parked cars
  • Theft

The Council is committed to carrying out highway maintenance works in order to meet three main objectives:

  • Keep the borough's roads and footways in a safe condition for highways users
  • Extend the service life of the road or footway
  • Enable the road or footway to withstand damage caused by wear and tear

Further information in relation to road and footway maintenance can be found here.
