Your Responsibilities for Ditches and Drainage

Balfour Beatty have refreshed the Riparian Responsibilities information to further engage riparian owners to take responsibility for their ditches and drains through awareness, support and guidance.

Where there is a lack of cooperation and there is a safety risk to highway users, or significant damage to highway, Balfour Beatty have put in a place a process to enable us to take a more formal approach.
