Road condition “broadly stable” since 2016 – report

The condition of local roads continues to be broadly stable since 2016, particularly for classified roads.

In 2023, the proportion of roads that should have been considered for maintenance is largely unchanged from the previous year. Local authorities reported the proportion of:

  • local ‘A’ roads that should have been considered for maintenance to be 4%, unchanged for the past 4 years
  • ‘B’ and ‘C’ roads that should have been considered for maintenance to be 6%, unchanged for the past 8 years
  • unclassified roads that should have been considered for maintenance to be 17%, a small increase from 16% in the previous year. Data for unclassified roads is less robust than for classified roads and continues to see greater yearly fluctuations than other roads

The chart shows the trend in the percentage of local roads that should have been considered for maintenance (red), in England, by road type, for the years 2008 to 2023.
