Nottingham’s annual road maintenance programme set to start

The City Council is committed to investing in road maintenance to improve the city’s Neighbourhoods. To help achieve this our Highways team will be starting a two week programme of road maintenance works on 8 August 2016. In total, work will be carried out on 18 Nottingham streets, at a cost of £240,000.

On the selected streets, the existing surface will be overlaid using the ‘microsurfacing’ process which is a quick and effective way to carry out preventative work to resist long term deterioration of the highway network.

Work is dependent on the weather so the schedule may have to change. Notices will be erected and local residents will be informed in advance when work will start on their streets. The full works programme is available at www.nottinghamcity.gov.uk/improvinghighways

Nick McDonald, Nottingham City Council’s Portfolio Holder for Business, Growth and Transport said: “With over 782km of roads in the city to maintain, this programme is essential to prevent road surfaces deteriorating, preventing the need for more costly road resurfacing. The process is quick and in most cases the surface treatment will be completed in 1 to 2 days. Nevertheless we apologise for any inconvenience caused and would like to thank you in advance for your cooperation in helping us carry out this essential work.”

Our Highways team regularly monitors and reviews the condition of the highway network to repair network elements or to make situations safe. Members of the public can report any faults on the road online at www.nottinghamcity.gov.uk/highways or over the phone by contacting the call centre on 0115 9152000.
