Torbay Council has a statutory duty to maintain adopted roads and paths (the Highway) within Torbay and keep them safe for use. This includes grass verges, potholes and footpaths as well as winter salting of roads in Torbay.
We inspect every adopted highway on a regular basis. Any area of road or pavement which the inspector thinks may become an imminent danger to road users or pedestrians is noted and a repair arranged.
If during this inspection any streets are judged to need more extensive treatment they are listed and their condition is visually assessed at a later date.
Each year we carry out a visual survey of the condition of all principal and other classified roads, some of the busiest unclassified roads and those unclassified roads that need more extensive treatment than minor repairs. This then provides us with the information needed to draw up the Council's annual structural maintenance program.
