The government in their Road Investment Strategy has unveiled £15.2 billion road investment under Highways England over the next ten years, with some ear marked for improving the surfacing on main routes throughout the country. The importance of this maintenance is emphasised by a predicted £2.6 billion future saving by repairing and maintaining road networks now. John Hayes transport minister speaking to the New Civil Engineer Magazine stated ‘ensuring we have well maintained roads and motorways is essential to a modern transport system’. It’s easy for roads to be left to deteriorate further causing costs later, and so it’s essential that repairs are made as soon as they occur. Here at ND Brown we welcome this investment in roads and have seen first hand the effect that neglect can have on road quality.
