Highway Maintenance and Minor Capital Works

Report of the Director of Environment

Item 6

Contact: Derek Goodchild, tel 02380 688227

1. Summary

1.1 This report outlines:

2. Background

2.1 Members may be aware from previous Panel meetings that the highway maintenance programme is funded from both revenue and capital allocations.

2.2 The revenue maintenance programme funds minor works such as pothole repairs, routine drainage work, including gully cleaning, signs and road markings, environmental maintenance of grass verges, trees and shrubs, weed control and highway emergencies. Minor bridgeworks and winter maintenance are also funded from revenue.

2.3 The capital maintenance programme funds planned maintenance, including special maintenance, resurfacing and surface dressing and also provides for essential repairs to the structure of the highway.

3. Progress with the 2004/05 Highway Maintenance Programme

3.1 The total allocation for Eastleigh for 2004/05 was £590,000. Progress throughout the year has generally been in line with the spend profile. All of the budget has been committed and the full allocation is expected to be used by the end of the year. A budget statement is included as Appendix 1.

3.2 The total allocation for Eastleigh for 2004/05 was £1,041,000. Good progress has been made with the programme and it is expected that it will be delivered as planned within time and budget constraints. A budget statement is included in Appendix 1 and a status report detailing progress of all special maintenance, resurfacing and surface dressing is attached as Appendix 2.

4. 2005/06 Highway Maintenance Budget

4.1 This year Hampshire has received a significantly reduced Central Government grant through the Local Transport Plan (LTP) process. The effect of this, plus other limitations on the budget this year, is a reduced budget for highway maintenance and hence a more limited programme of highway maintenance works.

4.2 The overall Highway Maintenance budget for 2005/06 approved by the Executive Member for Environment is £45.2 million, comprising £21.6 million revenue funding and £23.6 million funding from the Capital Programme provision. The total allocations for Eastleigh are expected to be £570,000 for revenue and £1,251,700 for capital funded works.

5. 2005/06 Highway Maintenance Programme

5.1 As described above, the revenue maintenance programme funds three main areas of highway maintenance:

5.2 Additional revenue budgets are held centrally for the performance elements of the County Council's term maintenance contract. The performance based work contained in the contract includes:

5.3 The funding allocation for the capital maintenance programme is based on the Highway Assessment Maintenance Priorities (HAMP) rating system which identifies locations having the greatest maintenance need. This system comprises an independent assessment of the condition of roads that have been identified as potential candidates for substantial maintenance work, such as resurfacing.

5.4 Planned structural maintenance repairs undertaken through the capital maintenance programme include surface dressing, special maintenance and resurfacing schemes. The total allocation for Eastleigh is expected to be £1,251,700 and a provisional budget breakdown is given in Appendix 3. A provisional list of schemes for 2005/06 is also attached in Appendix 4.

6. Minor Capital Works

6.1 This section of the report outlines:

6.2 The Capital Minor Works programme (also known as the Under £10,000 programme) is funded from the capital allocation based on the LTP submission to the Department for Transport. In the 2004/05 programme £200,000 was allocated county-wide, of which £15,000 was allocated to Eastleigh. The schemes in the programme were:

6.3 Progress on these schemes has been as follows:

6.4 The Capital Minor Works rolling programme is compiled from suggestions made by elected Members, the Police, Parish Councils, Residents' Associations, members of the public and Mobility Groups, etc. A schedule of schemes under consideration for the Eastleigh area is given in Appendix 5. This schedule includes schemes that were suggested back in 2003/04 and Members' comments are invited so that the schedule can be updated to include only currently viable schemes.

Recommendations

1. That the section of this report on Highway Maintenance (sections 2 to 5) be noted.

2. That Members select three schemes from the list given in Appendix 5 that they feel should be given priority, approve the allocation of funding to these schemes and that the Executive Member for Environment be advised accordingly.
