Third party accident damage

  • Monday February 19, 2018

The IHE has received several requests for best practice guidance to be issued to assist local highway authorities in recovering costs for third parties who have damaged the highway or any of its apparatus.

The IHE believe that many authorities fail to recover the full value of repairing damage and this leads to a resulting charge against their revenue budgets which are under extreme pressure for other demands.

If any members or others have any advice they would be willing to share or who like to be involved in preparing a best practice guide, please contact IHE CEO Richard Hayes via email
