Regional praise for Council's Traffic Management

The Department of Transport rates Redcar and Cleveland Council's arrangements for the management of road traffic as the best in the North East.

An assessment of network management duties by the Department has given the Council the highest score, 73%, of any of the eight local highway authorities in the region.

The Council has a duty to manage planned roadworks and prepare for any unplanned incidents in order to limit the impact of congestion on traffic flow across 90 miles of main roads and 330 miles of minor roads.

The Council was praised for the level of liaison undertaken with other organisations such as the emergency services and the bus operators and for the coordination of roadworks with utility companies.
