Annual road condition scores

We undertake annual condition surveys of our classified road network (A, B and C Roads) which produce condition scores for our network. These scores are reported back to Central Government – More information can be found on GOV.UK.

We utilise these condition scores to help identify sections of our network requiring works. The graph shows our classified network condition scores:

Red – Plan maintenance soon Amber – Plan investigation soon Green – Generally good condition

 

  2014/15 2015/16 2016/17 2017/18 2018/19
Green 75.40% 75.40% 73.30% 73.84% 75.01%

Annual potholes reported/repaired

This shows the annual total of potholes reported to us by members of the public and number of potholes repaired by our contractors. The repairs are those potholes repaired as either temporary fills or fix time repairs. For more details on First Time fix repairs, see below. The difference is due to our regular inspections of the highway network by our dedicated safety inspectors. More details on how we deal with road defects can be found online.

Drainage – Number of gullies inspected and cleaned per month

Warwickshire maintains over 100,000 gullies across the County. This is the number of gullies which have been inspected and cleaned by our gully crews per annum and the percentage which are inspected and cleaned. Some gullies may be inaccessible due to parked cars which is why not all are inspected and cleaned.

Gullies inspected and cleaned Percentage
2017/18 94.09%
2018/19 95.54%
2019/20 94.11%

Winter maintenance

We treat approximately 46%, 1,100 miles, of our network when we grit. We have a policy which states that when the formation of ice is predicted we will treat:

  • all main traffic routes, A roads, most B roads and one or two other strategic routes
  • in urban areas, the access to hospitals and main industrial estates
  • a single route into villages

The details in the charts show the distance we travel and the amount of salt used each winter.
