Highways information [v]

Information on your highways.

Key facts and figures

  • This year the council received approximately £25.1 million of capital grant funding from the Government via the Department for Transport (DfT) settlement and Pothole Fund.
  • This is bolstered by other funds for example; the Council’s £150million ‘Your Highways’ Investment, flood levy funding , Emergency Active Travel Fund (EATF).
  • Our focus is on maintaining the safety of our roads and the programme of works are developed using the TAMP, using capital resources to reduce future revenue expenditure.
  • Capital funding is split across the two core areas: INTEGRATED TRANSPORT and STRUCTURAL MAINTENANCE.
  • The core areas are further split into the ‘types’ of highway assets and their approximate budgets together with their indicative ‘standstill’ value are shown in the table below.
