Highways and Transport Delivery Programmes 2022/2023

The Highway and Transport Delivery Programmes identify capital highways infrastructure maintenance and transport improvement schemes for delivery during 2022/23 and beyond. Capital funding for the Delivery Programmes is predominantly received from the Government for roads maintenance (the Local Highway Maintenance Block), and transport improvements (the Integrated Transport Block) supported by additional funding from developer agreements and contributions.

 

The indicative forward programmes for Highway Infrastructure Maintenance, Local Transport Improvements (LTIP) and Community Highway Schemes (CHS), have informed the 2022/23 Highways and Transport Delivery Programmes. These provide transparency of the maintenance and improvement investment needs and the funding priorities prepared and selected for review and approval in this decision.

 

The Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport will be asked to -

 

1.     Approve the Highway and Transport Delivery Programmes 2022-23; and

 

2.     delegate authority to the Director of Highways, Transport and Planning to adjust the 2022/23 Delivery Programmes to take account of budgetary pressures and any changes in priority arising as a result of network availability, emergencies, or other operational circumstances, in consultation with the Cabinet Member.

 

It should be noted that the above will be subject to confirmation of funding at a Full Council meeting. Also, that the timetable for confirmation of central government funding is not currently known.
