Resurfacing works to continue into December


A five-week programme to resurface 10 of the city’s roads and Charles Cross roundabout will get under way on Sunday 15 November.

The works are part of an £11.2 million repair programme that will treat two thirds of Plymouth’s strategic road network (A, B and C roads) over the next three years.

More than 60 main roads and three roundabouts have already been resurfaced over the spring and summer and a further 29 roads have been given a new lease of life through a preventative micro asphalting programme.

The works are being carried out by our highways contractor Amey alongside its day-to-day road maintenance programme, which sees 10 gangs carrying out permanent first-time repairs to individual potholes across the city.

Councillor Brian Vincent, Cabinet Member for Streetscene said: “Improving the condition of Plymouth’s road network has been a key priority for the Council as it affects both residents and business on a daily basis.

“We’ve been working with Amey to take a more proactive and preventative approach to repairs and using technology like the Roadmaster we have been able to repair far more potholes permanently, first time.

“Our improved result in this year’s NHT Survey shows that people are seeing a difference out on the roads but we know there is still a lot of work to, which is why we’re spending more than £8 million on road repairs this year, despite significant funding challenges.

“We want to build on the improvements we’ve made and we’ll be continuing to work with Amey to deliver the resilient road network Plymouth deserves.”
