Cat’s eyes and road markings

Road markings and road studs, also known as cats eyes need to be kept in good condition. They are a vital part of road safety and are important for maintaining traffic flow and preventing obstructions.

We perform regular visual and technological inspections of our road studs and markings to check their condition and in particular:

  • Wear
  • Visibility
  • Skid resistance.

If you notice any problems with our road studs and markings, such as damage or excessive wear please tell us about it.

Before you start

You’ll need to provide:

  • An accurate location for the problem
  • A description of the problem
  • Your contact details, if you want updates

You can report an issue to us online, using our dedicated form, or you can contact us by phone, on 01724 297000.

What happens next

We send a qualified inspector to every defect that’s reported to us and prioritise repairs based on a risk assessment.

The inspection generally happens within 10 working days of us receiving a report.

Repairs are usually completed alongside other planned work to minimise disruption.

If the defect does not fit within our guidelines we may not repair it, but we will continue to monitor it through routine inspections.
