Flood recovery fund works
This news article was published more than a year ago. Some of the information may no longer be accurate.
The council has allocated this funding to a number of programmes aimed at reducing the risk to road users of potholes and flooding impacts. The programmes of work are being delivered in this financial year, 2014/15.
The approach taken will reduce the number of carriageway defects on the network and improve road conditions for all users and particularly for cyclists and motorcyclists.
The works programmes are:
1. A major programme of pothole repairs on the rural and main road networks. The repairs we are using will provide a first time fix reducing the need for repeat visits and providing long term repairs.
2. A programme of repairs to road surfaces around drains and other metal covers in the road. The programme will include resetting and replacing covers where they are worn or displaced.
3. A highway flood alleviation scheme on the Old Gloucester Road and Perrenpit Road, where extensive flooding over the winter period caused major traffic disruption and has left the road in need of major repairs.
4. The removal of trees and other debris from vulnerable bridges to avoid costly damage to the structures and allow the free flow of water during summer and winter storms.
