In short, a road maintenance contract applies to a private road. What is a private road? Here is the definition of the Free Legal Dictionary: a private road is often set up because a person must have access to land. Such a road can pass through another person`s property. A private road can be used by the general public and is open to all those who wish to use it, but it benefits above all those at the request of those who have set it up. Unlike community-maintained highways, private roads are maintained to the detriment of individuals who have requested the road. In our previous article in this series, we looked at the most common easement of access to property and rural properties. In today`s article, we will look at road maintenance contracts.

Once the easement is established and multiple parties will have access, how will the responsibility for maintaining the property be shared among the beneficiary parties? There are, of course, exceptions and work prospects for these requirements.
