Road repair and improvement programme 2022-2023

We identify and prioritise what maintenance, repair and improvement work to do each year. We do this by using our highways asset management approach.

Funding summary

Highways funding is split into two areas – revenue and capital. Revenue comes from the Council Tax and is used for day to day maintenance activities. Capital funding is provided by central government grants and the councils own investment and delivers improvements to the road network.

For the 2022/23 financial year, the highways revenue budget is £10.987 million and the capital budget is £22.793 million.

The level of funding needed to stop the public highway network in the borough getting worse is currently estimated to be per annum £28 million for revenue activities and £27 million for capital works.

This year the budget has been allocated across the key service areas as follows:

Lists of programmed work for 2022-23

You can view the programme list of current and completed works below for 2022-2023, these works are in alphabetical order and may be subject to change.

We will update the progress of the programmes every month. You can search the file for your road name or ward by pressing Ctrl & F on a keyboard and typing the name of your road or ward into the search field.

How we prioritise the locations for the work

The list of work is put together using a scored approach, with scoring being informed by defined criteria including condition, customer reports and engineering knowledge. This ensures that our works are prioritised where they are most needed.

We may have identified your road for improvement works but it doesn’t always mean it will be in this year’s programme of works. It is likely that it will be included for repair works over the longer term. This is because there is only a limited budget available, so we prioritise the works on roads where they are most needed using a scored approach. Our programmes sometimes change if more funding becomes available.

You can view the individual asset programmes and the scoring method for each in more detail here:
