Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


To carry our repairs to enable next year’s programme of carriageway surfacing and preventative maintenance to be carried out, thus prevent further deprecation of the asset.


Pre-patching of the road is required to repair foundation failures prior to carrying out surfacing work which may include preventative maintenance (i.e. Surface Dressing or Micro Asphalt). The foundation repairs are essential to address defects within the lower layers of a road, to ensure that it remains capable of distributing the loading from vehicular traffic.

Alternative options considered:

Option 1 - Alternative option would be not to carry out the work, which would be to the detriment of the authority undertaking its statutory duty and would cost the authority more in the long term.
Option 2 -
Option 3 -
