ISLAND Roads is to introduce increased measures to ensure Isle of Wight highways dug up by third parties are re-instated to a high standard.
The test, called coring, involves removing samples from recently reinstated highways and checking them to ensure the replacement work is of suitable quality.
All work carried out on the roads, such as work by utility companies or the dropping of kerbs, will be subject to the new coring process.
Island Roads is working closely with all those who carry out works on the highway network to ensure they are aware of the required reinstatement standards. However, it does have the power to ensure substandard work is brought up to scratch if necessary.
