When determining the exact scope of the remedial action for a non-compliant reinstatement, the quality of the reinstatement must be assessed relative to the condition of the adjacent structure. Other considerations are:
The long-term durability of the highway asset
The additional congestion that may be caused by the remedial work
The environmental impact
Any agreement between both the authority and the works undertaker, including an agreement that no remedial works are required, should be recorded on the relevant street works notice or permit.
