Join roads debate through ICE online clubs

ICE News

THE ICE is urging members to get involved in the local road maintenance debate by registering their views with the ICE's transport engineering club.

The engineering clubs are the ICE's online source of useful job information and feature discussion forums where members can 'meet' to exchange views and technical knowledge.

The ICE is now urging members to contribute to its response to a House of Commons transport sub-committee inquiry into road and pathway maintenance, by using the transport engineering club forum.

Issues being pursued by the committee include the local road maintenance backlog, coordination of street works, and the role and suitability of best value indicators in improving cost-effectiveness.

The ICE is also homing in on problems arising from inadequate maintenance. These include third party liability claims, factors influencing the deterioration of roads such as flooding, the provision and maintenance of street lighting and its role in road safety, the importance and costs of providing high quality pedestrian and cycling environments, and the applicability of private finance initiatives to local road maintenance.

The transport sub-committee's inquiry can be viewed at www. parliament. uk/commons/ selcom/tlgrpnt70. htm. Members can add their comments by visiting the transport engineering club on the ICE website.
