Road surfaces deteriorate at varying rates depending on weather, winter severity (frost, freeze-thaw), traffic volumes / type (HGV’s do more damage than cars), as well as the level of routine maintenance or amount of utility work and the quality of reinstatements.

On aggregate most roads in Gloucestershire deteriorate at between 2 to 4% per year. Using our best estimate of deterioration rates and the average cost of resurfacing, the annual spend required to keep up with deterioration on our roads - stand still costs - can be calculated. This is estimated at £16.8 million as shown in the table to the right.
