Minutes:

The Executive Member considered a report which provided a review of the service performance in highway maintenance over the last year, it examined the issues arising and proposed programmes of work to be undertaken in the financial year 2011/12.

 

Officers outlined the report and highlighted the following key points:

  • Work is now being procured through the Specialist Surfacing Framework Agreement and not Tarmac.
  • 200k allocated by Members for high priority drainage works had been spent successfully.
  • The 5 carriageway resurfacing schemes that are to carry over into 2011/12.

 

Councillor Alexander had submitted a written comment to request that the road and footpath scheme for Holgate be given priority due to the number of elderly residents that are concerned about the state of the footpaths in the area. Officers advised that the work would be carried out this financial year.

 

The Executive Member thanked the winter gritting teams in particular the drivers who had worked tirelessly and acknowledged that the resurfacing schemes had been successful and was happy that more had been completed than anticipated in the past year.
