During 2018/19 the government allocated Staffordshire County Council an additional £8.899 million 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.

In line with our highway asset management plan we have used this money to address the following priorities:

Life-adding resurfacing and preventative maintenance (£4.799m)

Carriageway schemes

  • A513 The Green, Handsacre
  • A34 Aston Island, Stone
  • A34 Liverpool Road, Newcastle-U-Lyme
  • A34 Lloyds Island, Stafford

Carriageway and footway combined schemes

  • U2077 High Street, Newcastle-U-Lyme
  • U6037 Hedging Lane, Tamworth
  • U5081 Williamson Avenue and Longstaff Avenue, Prospect Village
  • U2075 Milbourne Drive, Clayton
  • D2540 Hawthornden Manor Mews, Uttoxeter

Footway schemes

  • D4266 Winston Road, Swindon
  • D3188 Meddins Lane and Close, Kinver
  • U6052 Grassholme, Tamworth

Preventative carriageway surface treatments

£1.21m was added to the preventative surface treatments budget for pre-patching roads prior to surface treatments being undertaken. Whilst additional surface treatments could not be undertaken in year due to the additional finance being allocated in November, the roads that were patched using the additional finance in 2018/19 will benefit from the application of preventative surface treatments in 2019/20, prolonging their life and ensuring the most efficient and effective use of the additional finance.

Preventative footway surface treatment

£400,000 was added to the footway pre-patching and surface treatments budget, allowing over an additional 3800m2 of footways to benefit from preventative surface treatments, prolonging their life and ensuring the most efficient and effective use of the additional finance.

Reactive pothole repairs (£3.5m)

Over 63,000 square metres of additional pothole repairs. 

Drainage repairs (£0.6m)

Over 250 minor drainage repairs were undertaken, repairing road gullies and their connections to alleviate areas of ponding and flooding caused by broken or blocked connections. 

This funding supplemented the £24.8m that Staffordshire County Council had already planned to invest in the wider maintenance of the network during 2018/19 as part of its annual highway and transport capital programme.
