To seek approval to the Highways and Transport
Capital Programme for 2020/21.
i. The overall Highways and Transport Capital Programme for 2020/21
ii. The highway maintenance funding for 2020/21 is targeted towards the Highway Maintenance Forward Programme (Annex 2 of the Director: Place, Planning and Regenerations report) having due regard to priority, availability of road space and available budget;
iii. The implications for resourcing the delivery of the work programmes are
The proposals in this report identify the current highway and transport priorities across the network. The schemes seek to facilitate transport in line with the Council’s Local Transport Plan 3 (LTP3) and ensure that the Council maintains the highway in as good a condition as resources allow, having due regard to the Council’s intervention policy based on network condition.
1. Failure to approve the Highways and Transport Capital Programme would prevent the delivery of the Council’s obligations as a Highway Authority and be contrary to the position set out in the Council’s adopted Transport Policy (LPT3).
2. Given the necessary reduction in highway maintenance funding levels in previous years, it would not be appropriate to allocate resources to anything other than the priorities identified through methodical and objective needs assessments.
