 Cumbria County Council Highways Asset Management Strategy (2020-2025)

The new strategy provides a framework for future maintenance of the county’s road network and sets out how the council will put customers at the heart of everything we do in providing a high quality highways service and well-managed assets that meet the needs of all road users.

The County Council recognises the need to manage the asset well and has adopted the best practice guidelines of the Well Managed Highway Infrastructure: A Code of Practice and the Highway Maintenance Efficiency Programme to ensure we maximise the impact of the limited resources available.

Cumbria has the fourth largest highway network in England, with over 7,900km of carriageway, 4,000 km of footways and cycleways, 3,200 structures, (including some 1,800 bridges, 900 large culverts and 500 retaining walls), 145,000 road gullies and 45,000 street lighting columns. The Council faces a significant challenge to make sure the highway asset is well managed, and to ensure the network operates efficiently. With limited resources it is now more important than ever to adopt innovative practices and increase our use of digital technology. We are keen to work closely with partners to achieve our shared ambitions and objectives.

The strategy sets out the council’s commitment to:

  • Enhancing the customer experience and keeping customers better informed
  • Making it easier for customers to access information online, by phone and email
  • Providing staff with the right resources, skills and capability to carry out their roles effectively in a digital organisation
  • Continuing to work with partner organisations and communities to achieve shared aspirations
  • Working closely with Parish and Town Councils to further develop the Working Together project to support communities to undertake additional work on the highway within an agreed protocol
  • Develop innovative solutions using digital technology to improve the resilience of our highways network and reduce the impact of climate change.


The strategy can be read and downloaded in full on the county council’s website here: https://www.cumbria.gov.uk/roads-transport/highwayassetmanagement.asp
