Highway programmes

Grass cutting schedule

We separate our highway verge maintenance into two programmes; rural grass cutting and urban grass cutting and there are various contractors engaged in this work, on our behalf, around the county. 

Find more information about grass, weeds, trees and hedges.

Weed control

Weed control is undertaken under one of two treatment schedules; rural, for roads with a speed limit of 40mph and above and urban, for roads with a speed limit of 30mph and below.

Carriageway preventative maintenance treatment

Preventative maintenance treatments such as surface dressing and micro asphalt are used to preserve and extend the life of roads that are already in a reasonable to good condition. Details of this year’s programme of road surfaces to receive preventative maintenance treatments can be found below.

All the treatments are weather dependant and this will impact on the progress of the below programmes if there are prolonged cold or wet conditions. For further detail on the types of treatment please see our asset investment page.
