ARF Highway Services (ARFHS) provides varying degrees of highway and traffic services available on a contract or 'Pay-as-you-Go' basis.
Consultancy contracts, providing general advice and services, are available to ensure highway information and assistance is readily on hand. These packages, which are particularly well suited for non-highway authority councils (e.g. Parish Councils, Town Councils and District/Borough Councils), are available on a 28 day, 6 month or 12 month basis. The contract packages currently available are:
A 12 month contract which is inclusive of unlimited highways advice and services* during this period. Also included are attendances to up to 2 meetings** per calendar month. If attendance is required to more than 2 meetings during this 1 month period an additional charge will be applicable per meeting.
An A12 contract will commence from the first day of an agreed calendar month from which the contract will begin***.
A 6 month contract which is inclusive of unlimited highways advice and services* during this period. Also included are attendances to up to 2 meetings** per calendar month. If attendance is required to more than 2 meetings during this 1 month period an additional charge will be applicable per meeting.
An A6 contract will commence from the first day of an agreed calendar month from which the contract will begin***
A 28 day contract which is inclusive of unlimited advice and services*. Also included are attendances to up to 1 meeting** during this period. If attendance is required to more than 1 meeting during this 28 day period an additional charge will be incurred per meeting.

Information provision/Questions & Answers

Traffic management measures for civil/engineering works. However, these costs may be incorporated as part of the overall cost of delivering engineering works by a 3rd party.
Depending on the location where civil/engineering works and/or surveys are being undertaken, and the specific nature of these works, a license(s) may be required from a landowner, local authority and/or agency (e.g. the local highway authority) who may levy a fee. However, these costs may be incorporated as part of the overall cost of delivering civil/engineering works by a 3rd party.
All other fees are included within the packages provided by ARF Highway Services (Packages A12, A6 and A1 only).
