Benefits of core testing with Trench-Right for local authorities


As a local authority, you will be well aware of how important it is that reinstatement is carried out correctly on public footways and highways. If it is not, it can lead to failures in the road and the possibility of legal action against the authority for damage to vehicles or personal injury claims. It's also possible that you will have to bear the brunt of the cost of remedial work, which can be expensive.

Core testing and sampling monitors the performance of statutory undertakers and contractors carrying out reinstatements on your highway network. It allows you to identify contractors who are performing poorly and minimise the likelihood of future defect costs.

At a time when budgets are being slashed, core testing can be an effective, proactive way of cutting the burden of future remedial work. Once problems have been identified, you can request that remedial work is carried out by the contractors concerned, minimising the risk of potholes, trench collapse or public liability in the future.


Efficiency is key to our service at Trench-Right so most of our processes use modern electronic technology to eliminate paperwork where possible and allow clients to view their own results via our website as soon as they become available.
