The road network is the largest and most visible community asset that the Council is responsible for. It is used daily by the majority of people and is fundamental to the economic, social and environmental well being of our communities. It helps to shape the character and quality of the local areas that it serves and makes an important contribution towards the delivery of the Council’s vision, values and strategic priorities.

The Council has an established and ongoing 'Bridge Assessment and Strengthening programme'. Strengthening and replacement of structures that have either failed the load assessment or where significant deterioration of the bridge fabric has occurred are prioritised,with the highest priorities funded from the capital budget allocation. Safety is a major aspect of the management and maintenance of road structures. Load assessments and regular inspections of these structures can give early warning of problems that require urgent rectification or alternatively the imposition of safety measures, such as the implementation and enforcement of weight or lane restrictions.

In 2009 the Scottish Government published Scotland's Road Safety Framework to 2020 'Go Safe on Scotland's Roads its' Everyone's Responsibility, a document that set the first national casualty reduction targets specific to Scotland and perhaps more importantly, an overall road safety vision. Table 1 shows the targets for 2020 and the milestones for 2015 against the baseline five-year average for 2004-2008.
|Casualty Reduction Targets for 2020||2015 Milestone % reduction||
|People seriously injured||43||55|
|Children (aged <16 ) killed||35||50|
|Children (aged < 16) seriously injured||50||65|

Contribution To National 2020 Casualty Reduction Targets
Accidents on our roads are rare and often random events. To ensure that we get a good idea of actual accident and casualty patterns, five-year averages are used for comparison to reduce the effect of random variability.
|People seriously injured||81.0||58.8||27.6||68|
|Children (aged <16 ) killed||0.4||0||-100||0|
|Children (aged < 16) seriously injured||6.4||3.4||-49.9||3|
|Slight Casualty Rate (per 110Mvkm)||24.9||20.23||-18.9||19.37|
