Our Ref: FOI-1604-1718

Thank you for your request received on 25 September 2017 asking for further information about the A406 Cambridge Heath Underpass.

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act and our information access policy. I can confirm we do hold the information you require.

Please see the extract from our contract below with regards to the driven inspection methods that take place at this location:

Safety inspections shall be undertaken on foot at frequencies to reflect the characteristics of the particular element of the Affected Property and its use, and at times of day which enable the inspection to be carried out thoroughly and safely. However, on high speed Strategic Routes (50/60/70 mph), on roads where there is no footway, or roads where the carriageway is too wide to identify defects from the footway, safety inspections shall be carried out by two operatives in a slow-moving vehicle. Safety inspections carried out in this way shall, whenever possible, be carried out during off-peak hours.

If this is not the information you are looking for please feel free to contact me.

Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to appeal.

Yours sincerely

Gemma Jacob
