Funding for highway maintenance is supported by Central Government through Capital grants. The Council sets policy and strategy and our contractor, CORMAC Solutions Ltd, delivers the day to day management and maintenance of the highway network. 

The council evaluates highway maintenance requirements and allocates the highway maintenance budget at the beginning of each financial year

The major tasks which form part of this service are highway inspections, surface dressing, resurfacing, patching, general purpose maintenance, maintaining road records.  We also plan and co-ordinate roadworks and all other works on the highway.  Other key tasks are temporary road closures, pavements, drainage, verge cutting, repairing potholes, winter gritting and snow clearance.

In April we received £10.7m from the Department of Transport as part of a national award to local highway authorities to deal with the consequences of the severe winter storms and associated flooding.

Our main aim is to repair the damage caused whilst building in resilience to ensure that our rural minor road network remains serviceable and able to support the life of our rural and coastal communities.

The following lists and maps show the location of works that will be undertaken as part of this programme.
