Bucks road resurfacing programme off to a great start
This year £15 million is being spent on surfacing Buckinghamshire's roads with more than 100 different routes on the 'to do' list.
The programme will include conventional surfacing across 38 roads, micro-surfacing across 51 roads and surface dressing across 20 roads. Roads included in the programme have been carefully selected with guidance from the Asset Management team, who have worked with Councillors and Local Area Technicians (LATs).
LATs have a broad knowledge of roads around the county and Councillors have an in depth knowledge of their area – combined, they’re able to select the roads that are most in need of repair in order to keep the public safe and the network moving.
Buckinghamshire County Council Deputy Leader and Transport Cabinet Member Mark Shaw, and Deputy Transport Cabinet Member Paul Irwin, visited a site in Slapton to find out more about the work being carried out this year.
The site, in Church Road/Slapton Lane, Slapton, is 1,720 metres long and will take nine days to complete.
That's just one example of the work that will be done through the surfacing programme - and as well as these roads there's another £4 million being spent on repairing potholes too.
