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
