Are your highway maintenance works cost effective and environmentally sustainable?
Whenever possible when ordering work we package it into larger jobs to minimise the number of visits by gangs, reduce travel time and traffic management set up costs. This also maximises the time spent on site.
This can sometimes mean that work is delayed until we have sufficient work in an area to justify sending a repair gang on site. While this means that some repairs take a little longer to be done, it allows us to stretch the budget further.
We aim to recycle all the material we remove from our roads. This also helps to reduce costs.
Wherever practical and cost effective, we use repair techniques that recycle the existing road or footway surface when carrying out our repairs.
