Road Condition Metadata
These tables report on the condition of public roads in each Government Office Region, using machine
survey data from SCANNER (Surface Condition Assessment for the National NEtwork of Roads) for local
authority roads in addition to machine survey data from TRACS (TRAffic speed Condition Surveys) for
SCANNER data have been collected by local authorities for their entire classified road network since
2005/06. These surveys improve on the manual inspections carried out as part of the National Road
Maintenance Condition Surveys (NRMCS) that were used prior to this. Machine surveys offer greater
objectivity, accuracy, consistency and repeatability than manual inspections and allow condition data to be

Definitions
Classified roads: Local authority owned and maintained roads with A, B or C classification. Note that in the
report’s tables and figures, the term principal roads refers to local authority A roads and the term classified
roads refers to local authority B and C roads. Local authority A, B and C roads account for some 40 per

Local roads: Local authority maintained ‘A’, ‘B’, ‘C’ and unclassified roads. These are also known as non-trunk roads.
Non-principal roads: Local authority maintained ‘B’, ‘C’ and unclassified roads
Principal roads: Local authority maintained ‘A’ roads. In general they carry less traffic than all purpose trunk roads which

machine-based surveys of surface condition, including cracking and rutting, of the trunk road network in
England. The TRACS specification covers the requirements for both the machinery used and the survey
Unclassified roads: Minor roads which are not designated as classified roads and which are owned and
maintained by a local highway authority. By length, some 60 per cent of the local authority network is
unclassified.
