We are working with KierMG as Suffolk Highways to maintain, manage and improve the public highway network in Suffolk. (The public highway consists of any verge, footway, carriageway, bridleway or footpath, whether or not maintained at public expense, and over which the public has a right of way).

We have to fulfill a number of statutory duties in our role as Highway Authority for these roads, many of which are contained in the Highways Act 1980. The Highway Maintenance Operational Plan sets out our approach to providing the highway maintenance service to meet our statutory duties.
Please note, we are not responsible for the maintenance of:
- trunk roads (A11, A12, A14 in Suffolk) (PDF, 89KB) which are the responsibility of the Highways Agency;
- private roads which are usually the responsibility of the people who access their properties from the private road.
