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.

Integrated Transport Programme

The Integrated Transport programme will help to deliver the eight Integrated Transport Strategies that have been developed for the District/Boroughs, together with the Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP). The Transport Strategies are updated to support the District/Borough Local Plans and the County Council’s Strategic Plan for 2018 to 2022 which has three interconnected priority outcomes that were refreshed in 2020, as follows:

  • Have access to more good jobs and share the benefits of economic growth
  • Be healthier and independent for longer
  • Feel safer, happier and more supported in their community

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.

Local Community Priorities

Each county councillor has a Divisional Highway Programme (DHP) which provides the council with a platform to prioritise local highway issues that may not otherwise meet the intervention criteria, for further investigation. These priorities are reviewed twice a year.

For further information please see our Divisional highway programme page.

Structural Maintenance Programme

We are responsible for maintaining all public roads and footways in a safe and serviceable condition. Structural maintenance is the collective term for activities which maintain the integrity of the road and footway structures which make up the network. It comprises good value, planned maintenance activities such as footway and carriageway resurfacing/reconstruction.
