County Councils up and down the country are on the front line of road repairs and maintenance in the UK. Whether they oversee the roads in a predominantly rural location or have urban and city streets falling under their jurisdiction. Fleet hire is a cost effective means of ensuring that high quality and reliable HGV trucks and specialist vehicles are at their disposal and can be brought in to action to meet demands. ND Brown has been supporting County Council’s in their efforts to keep traffic moving throughout the nation.
Fleet Hire for Road Repairs and Maintenance
Road repairs generally fall into two categories.
Planned maintenance is scheduled in advance and is programmed to be carried out during “road repair season” which is from spring until late summer. This is generally due to the more accommodating weather and warmer temperatures which make tasks such as resurfacing more effective.
Reactive repairs are carried out all year round to repair damage to the road surface. This could be following an accident or spillage. Climate change is also having an impact upon our roads and more intense rainfall can lead to localised flooding and damage. Once flooding has subsided, the area is assessed, and emergency repairs are actioned to reopen a stretch of road as quickly as possible. During the winter months falling temperatures leads to water and snow in fissures freezing and creating the dreaded pothole. County Councils will dispatch teams to repair these potholes to minimise disruption and damage to road users’ vehicles.
