The council’s director for communities Janine Nightingale said: “This is part of an ongoing investment of millions of pounds into the highway network to make improvements for communities across the county borough.

“While the programme is now being scheduled, we will continue to look at requests for highway improvements and will undertake inspections as necessary, adding them to the programme if they are deemed as higher priorities.                                                  

“Every effort is made to limit disruption while highway improvement works are carried out, however considering the scale of the works, it is inevitable there will be some disruption and we apologise in advance for any inconvenience. We ask drivers for their understanding and patience while we complete these works.”

Areas where work is needed are identified by the council’s highways inspectors who use a series of assessments, condition surveys and skid-resistance tests while also taking into account issues raised by the public and local councillors.
