Highways Agency maintenance contracts require service providers to maintain the paved carriageway, including road markings and studs, to defined standards. These standards include performance requirements for the repair of serious defects within defined timescales.

Service providers are subject to regular audit and performance monitoring by the Highways Agency to ensure contractual requirements are being met.
