Sixty seven roads will be improved and renewed as part of Wokingham Borough Council’s £4.8million resurfacing programme for 2021-22.
The council will also be carrying out footway repairs at 14 locations as part of the work being undertaken, with more details on these set for release later this year.
“We have an unwavering commitment to invest in our road network, with £13million invested or earmarked for spending on maintenance across the borough over the last few years,” said Cllr Pauline Jorgensen, executive member for highways and transport.
“We know our motorists and cyclists expect their journeys around the borough to be smooth and keeping our roads maintained to a high standard helps us to do this. But they also expect journeys to be smooth even when we’re carrying out these improvements, so we work overnight or off-peak during the day to ensure we aren’t disrupting journeys on key routes.”
In total there will be 28 full resurfacing schemes, 20 surface dressing schemes and 19 microasphalt schemes.
These will take place in phases throughout the financial year, with the first phase starting in May. The council continues to invest in its highway maintenance, with more than 220 roads seeing works take place over the last two financial years.
It is part of a series of highway investments in Wokingham Borough including the council’s £124million major highways programme and new or improved park and ride car parks and services across the area.
The council is also beginning its work to invest £20million in tackling congestion over the next few years.
