Network Management Policy

Last updated: 9 February 2022

Contingency plans for incidents and emergencies

In the case of an emergency incident on the Highway Network, Buckinghamshire Council (BC) has detailed continuity plans.

Business continuity plans set out the response to emergency situations that may impact the network. The business continuity plans will be used in any situation that requires immediate response on the highway infrastructure network. By following the guidance set out in the business continuity plan, any situation will be responded to with appropriate resources to minimise any impact to the highway network.

The BC business continuity plan also sets out how we would continue to operate and fulfil our Network Management Duty in the event of an emergency situation affecting our ability to operate from our normal place of work.
