You asked

F/on from FOI-0557 Further to your disclosure below, please can we have your records relating to the monthly inspections carried out over a one year period from November 2020 to November 2021 together with your policies relating to the procedure for monthly inspections.

We answered

Our ref: FOI-1894-2223/GH

Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 3 November 2022 asking for information about maintenance inspections.

Your request has been considered under the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and our information access policy. I can confirm that we do hold the information you require.

Please find attached our monthly inspections record for the period November 2020 to November 2021.

The excerpt from our Works for London HMPF contract regarding the frequencies of inspections is shown below:

The Contractor shall carry out safety inspections on the network lengths identified in the Client’s Scope at the frequencies shown in table 33.1.

While Carriageway and Footway are defined terms in the highways act, that does not prevent them having broader meanings in places where that act does not apply, (i.e. Scotland) as paved areas over which ‘carriages’ and foot traffic can pass.

In addition we carry out the UKPMS Detailed Visual Inspections (DVI’s) covering the carriageway and footways every 2 years (so approx. 50% of the accessible TLRN is surveyed each year). The last time TfL carried out a DVI on the footway at this location was on 22/10/2020 which was just prior to the time period mentioned in request.

If this is not the information you are looking for, or if you are unable to access it for some reason, please do not hesitate to contact me.

If you are not satisfied with this response please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to appeal.

Yours sincerely
