Highway Maintenance Funding Bids

Annual Progress Report – Pothole Action Fund 2018/19

The Department for Transport has identified extra funding for councils to carry out road repairs to stop the formation of potholes.

Sefton Metropolitan Borough Council received a grant of £476,956 for road repairs. This was extra funding in addition to the planned 2018/19 revenue and capital highway maintenance

investment budgets of £3,147,400

  • Capital Funding £1,417,400
  • Revenue Funding £1,730,000

The Council committed to publishing an annual report on its website, which will be copied to the Department for Transport, showing how much money has been spent, along with the type of activities which have been undertaken and where.

Budgets had already been set aside to deal with potholes that have formed, been reported and require attention quickly. This additional funding was used to deal with those locations that have the potential to develop into potholes or that have suffered repeated pothole formation and require localised repair.

These funds have been used to support the council’s, annual carriageway surface treatment and resurfacing programmes.

Approximately £22,956 of this funding was invested in carriageway pre-treatment patch repairs. £323,000 was used to fund the council’s micro asphalt surfacing programmes and support the treatment of approximately 43,314m2 of carriageway which was showing signs of initial surface failure and pothole expansion. The remaining funds of £131,000 was used to enhance the council’s annual resurfacing programme and support improvements on selective sites which had suffered repeated pothole formation and gone beyond preventative type treatment measures such as micro asphalt surfacing.

The funding allowed Sefton Metropolitan Borough Council to undertake preventative type and resurfacing improvements at the following sites:
