Roads - bridges
North Yorkshire County Council maintains over 1,600 bridges on the County road network within North Yorkshire in partnership with consultants Jacobs. The business and environmental services client unit has responsibility for this work.
The County Council is not, however, responsible for bridges on the A1M and M62 motorways and other major trunk routes such as the A1, A168/A19, A64 and A66.
These are managed by the Highways Agency which is part of the Government's Department for Transport.
Footbridges on public rights of way are maintained by the countryside services public rights of way team whilst urban footbridges, footbridges next to fords and all pipes and culverts with a width less than 1.5 metres are the responsibility of the local highway maintenance manager within highways North Yorkshire.
