Roads, footpaths, drainage and trees

Home > Risk management > Liability risk management

As a road authority you carry responsibility for your local road network, its associated drainage and footpaths. Your area no doubt also contains a vast array of naturally occurring and planted vegetation (trees). We understand with all of these items, as with most local government assets, you have limited resources to allocate to their management and many other interests competing for these resources.

With our expertise, supported by decades of local government claims experience in these areas, we can assist you with identifying public risks associated with these assets and prioritising the allocation of your attention and resources to address these risks.

We are able to assist you with:

  • Public risk considerations including at concept and design stage
  • Site risk assessments
  • Signage and warnings recommendations
  • General public risk advice
