The annual highways structural maintenance programme is funded from capital expenditure sourced through:

  • Local Transport Plan Maintenance Block Funding from Central Government

  • Section 31 Grant Funding

  • Council Capital Funding

This annual programme of works is segregated into the improvement of a variety of highway assets as follows:

All the works included in the carriageway and footway/footpath programmes are subject to rigorous prioritisation and options appraisal utilising best asset management practice such that optimal value for money works are carried out taking into account local issues. Significant work is done in terms of machine and visual surveys, analysis of revenue expenditure and safety inspection records all assessed against network hierarchy in determining priority and treatment to be applied.

Our Street Work team work both internally with other departments and externally with public utility companies to co-ordinate works across our highway network and those of neighbouring authorities.

Carriageway Improvement Works

Surfacing and Reconstruction Works

These works traditionally involve overlaying or inlaying large areas of carriageway and where necessary carrying out deeper reconstruction on isolated areas where significant structural failure is evident. Coring investigation work is undertaken beforehand to fully assess the work required.

The overlaying of an existing carriageway will involve treating the surface with a tack coat on to which a new surface course is applied. Inlaying is more intrusive as it involves planing and milling of the existing surface followed by the application of tack coat and new surface course. With both processes there is the need to adjust the height and level of all ironwork along the affected length.

Typical surface course materials are Asphalt Concrete (bitumen macadam), Hot Rolled Asphalt or another selected proprietary product selected to meet local site conditions.

Due to the health and safety of both highway users and operatives carrying out the works this type of work in most cases necessitates a road closure for the duration. To minimise disruption to highway users these works can on occasion be carried out overnight and on weekends. School holidays and local events are considered in the planning and programming of these projects.

Surface Dressing

Surface dressing is a simple and highly cost-effective method of repairing the road surface, which can prevent much more expensive work being needed later. It allows us to maintain a high quality road network on a finite budget.

The process involves spraying the road surface with a coating of hot liquid bitumen, known as a binder. The coating is then covered with clean crushed stone chippings, which are rolled into the bitumen to form a water-resistant, protective layer, which improves skid resistance.

This type of work can only be done in the spring and summer months, when the weather is warm and dry, as the bitumen will not stick to the road in cold or wet conditions. This is a mobile operation and is an efficient process that allows us to reduce the time on site, thus causing minimum disruption to local highway users. These works are normally only carried out on the rural roads of our Network as using hot applied binder is not suitable within urban areas.

Micro Asphalt

Micro Asphalt Surfacing consists of bitumen emulsion and aggregate slurry which is laid cold by a specialised machine. The surfacing seals the top surface and improves skid resistance not dissimilar to Surface Dressing.

This type of surfacing is widely used in the urban areas of our Network. The finished surface has low noise characteristics and good riding qualities; as this is a mobile operation it is an efficient process that allows us to reduce the time on site thus causing minimum disruption to local highway users.

Sites and dates of resurfacing are shown below. Any constructive comments or concerns are welcome in order to help us improve our methods of working and public relations. These comments can be sent by email to Highways@bathnes.gov.uk or by a phone call to Council Connect on 01225 39 40 41 (in each case asking for the information to be forwarded to Andy Higginson in the Highway Maintenance Team).
