Barnsley Council is to consider additional work to carriageways and bridges, including drainage, traffic signals, road restraint systems, footways, cycleways, street lighting, road signs and markings.
A total of £13.2m was allocated for a host of projects in 2020/21, with a projected £9.9m and £8m more in 2021/22 and 2022/23 respectively.
According to the local authority’s forward plan – which includes major infrastructure projects for the next 12 months – its highways capital programme for 2022/23 will be formally agreed on March 23, according to the Barnsley Chronicle.
A report said: “The highway asset is the single highest value asset the council owns. The last reported gross replacement cost for the entire asset was £2.1bn.
“The proposed investment will make it more sustainable in the longer term and provide a better experience for highway users.”
