A guide to highways contains an overview of the service that is delivered by East Sussex Highways (ESH), a Joint Venture (JV) between Costain and Jacobs, managed by the East Sussex County Council (ESCC) Contracts Management Group, which commenced in May 2016.
This guide will focus on key issues and comments that tend to be raised by members of the public.
ESH recognise the importance of the Highway network. The highway infrastructure is vital to not only the economic growth of the county but to keep local communities safe and connected as promoted by our council’s priorities. The local highway network is without doubt the most valuable publicly owned asset managed by East Sussex County Council (ESCC) with a total value of £8.58 billion (2017).
The Council is committed to having the best road condition for the investment available, and supports an asset management based approach for the maintenance of the highway network.
