Minutes:

The Executive Member considered a report which outlined the preparation of the provisional highway maintenance surfacing programmes. The report recommended and sought approval to begin advanced design for a list of schemes in each category of work.

 

Officers outlined the report in particular the following issues:

 

  • The annual condition survey had been carried out in July, using only one individual to ensure consistency.
  • A map will be published on the Members pages to show the grade of roads.
  • A reduction in funding has resulted in a reduced list of programmes by around 20%. Adjustments to the programme as a result of any change of budget will be made accordingly and reported to Members in March.

 

In response to the registered speakers comments, the Head of Highway Infrastructure acknowledged that the work carried out in 2006/07 had not worked and advised that the road between Cavendish Grove to Baysdale will be repaired under the 2011/12 programme and this would be a final fix.

 

The Executive Member then made the following comments:

 

  • That a briefing note be prepared for her on the Tranby Avenue situation and that it be shared with Osbaldwick Parish Council. The comments by the speaker were noted.
  • In relation to Annex 1 – the chart shows that the condition of York’s roads has been improving recently and the additional funding received had helped achieve this.
  • It is prudent to adopt a lesser programme of works at first and hope that further funding will be forthcoming.

 

 

 

RESOLVED:             That the Executive Member:

 

(i)                 Noted the results of the 2010 condition surveys on the city’s roads and footways.

(ii)               Approved the split in funding between footways and roads on a 40/60 basis.

(iii)             Approved the provisional programme of work listed in Annexes 3 to 12 of the Officers report.

(iv)                 That Officers prepare a briefing note on the current situation and history of the works in Tranby Avenue in light of the speakers comments.1

 

REASON:                  To ensure the Highway Maintenance budget is expended in the most cost effective way based on the Council’s assessed priorities and approved policies.
