Planned capital programme

We have a planned programme of works that are carried out every year to fix issues on the highway network. This work relates to different asset types such as roads, street lighting, bridges, footways and cycleways. The current programme for 2021/22 is shown in the document below, along with the current approved budget splits for 2020-25.

Looking after our roads

Our highways are maintained and repairs identified either through public reports or during our routine inspections. We investigate these reports using the council’s intervention policy and professional judgement.

We are currently managing a considerable number of enquiries and ordering a significant number of repairs. We are working with our contractor Milestone to ensure that repairs are made and to make more resources available.

We are also looking at innovative methods and materials for our reactive and planned works. These are:

  • Using smaller aggregate
  • Patching when several potholes are in the same area, rather than filling individually
  • Enabling Milestone to fix nearby potholes even if not ordered.
  • Using graphene-enhanced asphalt on some of our resurfacing works.
  • Using warm-mix asphalt
  • Incorporating recycled materials where possible

Routine inspection frequencies

The routine inspection frequencies and methods used are detailed in the Highways Inspection Safety Policy.

Reporting a problem

You can report any defect found with the highways at any time using Fix My Street.
