Street care and cleaning Farming and the highway

Farming is an important industry in our rural county. As a result, tractors are a frequent sight on our roads.

Farming and the Public Highway: a Code of Practice outlines how the cooperation of the farming community is vital in helping us to keep our roads safe for all. The code provides information on:

  • Mud on the highways
  • Maintaining ditches and drains
  • Maintaining adjacent hedges
  • Crop irrigation and smoke
  • Agricultural vehicles on the road
  • The use of agricultural road signs
