Path Maintenance

PDF Print

Maintenance needs to be seen as an integral part of the management of a path network – the time spent planning, designing and constructing paths will be severely compromised without maintenance being done. Maintenance can be easy to plan and cheap to implement and should be incorporated at the planning and design stages of path projects, rather than ‘tagged-on’ as an afterthought after a path has been constructed.

Regular maintenance will help to avoid large repair costs, compared to paths that have been neglected. This section gives guidance on what is maintenance and how to plan, implement and resource maintenance to get the best long term value from a path network.
