Highways England is responsible for road markings on all motorways and trunk roads, such as the A1. We responsible for road markings on all other A, B and C class roads and most unclassified roads. All lines on the highway must be authorised by the local authority.
Road markings are subject to considerable wear. All our roads are subject to safety inspections at least annually - this includes identifying any markings that are badly damaged or degraded.
The Highway Code gives examples of line use and the associated rules.
Request road markings
Requests for single or double yellow lines have to go through a parking review process.

White lines can be added across private driveways, crossovers and garage fronts that go onto the public highway. White lines deter someone blocking access from your driveway to the road only - we do not enforce these.
