Highway schemes

All of Darlington’s A, B and C roads are surveyed once a year by independent specialists using a Surface Condition Assessment for the National Network of Roads (SCANNER) machine to measure a range of road condition parameters. A quarter of the unclassified network is surveyed visually on a yearly basis by an independent inspector.

These surveys not only provide the government with a national performance indicator but are used by our highway engineers to produce a medium term (five year) programme of work and also the yearly programme of work based on the available budgets.
