Roadworks and closures
The duration of all roadworks cannot be guaranteed due to external influences such as outside agencies, weather conditions or other unforeseen circumstances.
Investment in carriageways
We have an ambitious highways capital programme planned for 2020/21, with a major investment of £6m in carriageways. The following list of roads has been derived and prioritised from the Highways Asset Management Strategy and co-ordinated with other initiatives and utility works where practicable.
In order of priority in each neighbourhood, these are the roads, or sections thereof, that will be resurfaced this year, utilising various treatments & techniques to remove potholes and restore a satisfactory surface. There will be unavoidable disruption to residents and journeys whilst the works are being carried out, but we will try to keep this to a minimum. Notice will be given ahead of the works so that residents, businesses and other road users can make alternative plans.
