Roads and waste

Devon has the longest road network in the country, with over 8,000 miles of road. Needless to say, such a large network needs a lot of maintaining, and we fill over 200,000 potholes each year.

These roads are essential to accessing Devon’s beautiful natural environment, but what is just as essential is keeping that environment clean. We process 350,000 tonnes of waste each year, and that number is only going to grow along with the county’s population.

Being able to get from A to B and live in a clean environment without waste are among the most essential things for any resident, and as such we have a range of jobs including, but by no means limited to, transport planners, recycling and waste management workers and road safety technicians working to make this a reality.
