Responded Mon 09 April 2018
I wish to make a request under the freedom of information act for information that relates to the highways inspection reports and procedures for maintenance workers and anything that relates to the fixing of signs including the correct height that you advise your staff and the legislation that maintenance engineers need to adhere to.
What are the procedures should there be a report of a water leak which causes the sign to sink and what procedures are in place to inform the necessary water authority of such a leak?
If there is nothing that is written anywhere please could you kindly confirm that there is nothing in writing that relates to safety checking height wise of the signs on posts particularly of those mounted on the pavements when carrying out an inspection.
I would also like to know how many personal injury reports you have had in the last 10 years where people have been injured as a result of dangerous, low and hazardous road signs on pavements in your area.
Please could you kindly list all the injury reports in the same way the report is organised below.
A road sign fell in front of claimant whilst he was cycling
Hit head on road sign whist assisting vulnerable adults as part of duties
