Moray Council is the Highway Authority for most of the roads in the small historic county of Moray, and a large part of the historic Banffshire excepting those managed by Transport Scotland, which are the A96 and part of the A95. As of 2016, Government Statistics say that the council is responsible for 98.8 miles of A roads; 182.5 miles of B roads and 767.2 miles of other roads. There is an additional 60.7 miles of Trunk roads within the council area, which are maintained by Transport Scotland.

Highways Management

The majority of everyday work on the road network in Moray is undertaken by the Councils own DLO (Direct Labour Organisation). However, some work, such as white-lining is sub-contracted out to outside contractors. This is normally on a job by job basis. Sometimes projects are undertaken as a partnership between the DLO and a Contractor. Some vehicles and equipment are shared with neighbouring DLOs (or at least hired in/out) to reduce the costs of each council having equipment lying idle for long periods. Moray is part of HiTrans, which includes the Island Councils, Argyll and Bute Council and Highland Council. Whilst HiTrans is predominately interested in regional transport strategy and sustainable and public transport, it sees the authorities working together on other projects.
