Introduction and overview

This unique database includes all highways maintenance authorities in the UK, and identifies levels of responsibility, term maintenance periods where appropriate and contacts and contact details where available, as a single reference point.

This database includes:

  • Identification of each authority and agency with responsibility for highways maintenance with full address and telephone number.
  • Indication of whether work is undertaken internally or contracted out.
  • Names of companies currently holding maintenance contracts for local authorities.
  • Information on contract periods.
  • Contact names and email addresses for persons responsible for highways maintenance activity within local authority or private sector partners. 
  • Contacts and emails for over 95% of all responsible authorities are included.

Researched in early 2015, the database contains over 480 entries, identifying responsibility at the various levels and represents an invaluable marketing tool to any organisation seeking to provide services or products into the sector. This database is produced in-house by our own research staff ensuring that the information provided is accurate, comprehensive, relevant and as up to date as possible.

Road maintenance in the UK is complex, reflecting wide variations in contract management arrangements between county / borough / district councils, unitary authorities, London Boroughs, Transport for London, Highways Agency and the devolved authorities in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. In addition, responsibilities are further complicated by whether authorities manage their own internal operations or award term maintenance contracts to leading contractors.

In many English counties responsibility for maintenance is at county level so one authority contact may be responsible for maintenance in several subsidiary authorities. Within the private sector, a contact may be responsible for contracts in several different authorities, in which case the individual's contact information will appear in the database more than once. The location, structure and internal division of UK administrative authorities is complex and varies from country to country. AMA Research has taken as its source the administrative authority boundaries defined by ONS as at 1st April 2009.

Specifically, the number of data records included is as follows:


  • County Councils and Metropolitan County Councils - 43
  • City, Borough and District Councils - 226
