Highway maintenance schemes

Highways maintenance funding - November 2018

In the 2018 Budget, the Government allocated £420 million funding in the 2018/19 financial year for local highways maintenance including the repair of potholes, to keep local bridges and structures open and safe, as well as to help aid other minor highway works that may be needed. We received £1.214 million of capital funding from this in November 2018 for works in the 2018/19 financial year. Despite the significant challenge to plan and deliver such a significant level of works in the available timeframe this was achieved through spending in a number of maintenance areas as set out below.
