The UK Roads Liaison Group (UKRLG) brings together national and local government from across the UK to consider roads infrastructure engineering and operations matters. It was set up in 2001, along with its Bridges, Lighting, Roads boards. The Network Management Board was formed in 2002. We hope you like the new site, if you have any comments we would like to hear from you: contact us.

Reminding practioners about the importance of proper training for handling claims on the highway network
In 2011 the UKRLG updated the section on Training to the 2nd edition of the Highway Risk & Liability Claims Guidance. People – from the supervisor on the ground to the senior officer – dealing with claims must be properly trained. If the highway authority is to provide evidence in court, it is important to be able to demonstrate that the individuals who operate the inspection & recording system are adequately trained.
Risk of bridge strikes
Bridge strikes continue to be a significant risk to railway safety. The UK Network Management Board supports the advice from Network Rail on the prevention of bridge strikes which is available here.
The UK Lighting Board is looking to hear from the sector for developing case studies on lighting schemes, this could be new LED schemes, to trials of trimming or profiled lighting. Please email Justin Ward to submit a case study.
