You'll probably use the road network on a daily basis, whether as a pedestrian, cyclist, motorcycle, by bus, taxi or by car.
Did you know that the road network you use everyday consists of approximately 1137 km of roads with a value of approximately £744 Million?
That's a whole lot of road!
As a new town many parts of our road infrastructure are now over 40 years old including business areas such as Birchwood. A decline in road conditions would have a detrimental impact on the longer term prosperity of the town, which is a negative in the context of future business investment.
Being committed to our customers and the continuing successful business growth of our town we've launched a £40m investment program in the form of a Prudential borrowing bid which will be delivered over the next 5 years.
The £40m has been allocated as follows:
- £27.5m – strategic road network (A,B and C roads)
- £10m – side streets and unclassified roads improvement programme
- £2.5m – footway improvement programme
