Via is a new company, set up in partnership between Nottinghamshire County Council and Cornwall Council. It provides highways and fleet management services in Nottinghamshire.
The name is taken from the Latin word for road.
The new organisation became fully operational in July 2016. The company is supported by both us and CORSERV, a company owned by Cornwall Council. It will be based in existing Nottinghamshire County Council highways buildings.
The new arrangement is due to reducing budgets and the need for work to be managed differently in order to meet budget challenges. The contract is for ten years and can be extended for five years. Via will be wholly owned by the public sector and will also be able to trade commercially to gain work of up to 20% of its turnover.
690 staff were transferred to Via from the council for the 1 July start date.
Via carry out a range of highways and fleet management services on behalf of the council. However if you would like to make a new highways request, you can report the issue to us online:
If you have any queries you can also call our customer service centre on telephone 0300 500 80 80.
