The repair of potholes and stopping them from forming is one element to improve road condition for all users. Well maintained highways not only improve local productivity but also the environment (by reducing delays), and makes cycling, walking more attractive. The Government is providing guidance and funding to highway authorities like Bolton to ensure that our local roads and other highway assets are fit for the future.
Highways assets include carriageways, footways, structures and bridges, street lighting, and other street furniture such as signage and traffic signals.
Funding for highways maintenance comes from a number of sources, including the Department for Transport and also from internal Council budgets.
