Bucks County Council have announced over £11 million in the coming year to go towards surfacing over 50 miles of roads and pavements across the county.

It's part of the Council's £15.9m package of investment in road improvements in 2017/18, and is in addition to nearly £9m on routine maintenance - pothole filling, safety fencing, gulley emptying, street lighting - by Transport for Buckinghamshire.

More than 100 roads in the county will be surfaced in the County Council's 2017-18 financial year, with prep work due to start in April and surfacing treatments beginning from May onwards.

The list of roads, to be finalised by the end of March, is a combination of surfaces needing priority treatment through condition testing, and roads chosen by local councillors under the guidance of TfB engineers.

The County Council have invested around £110 million since 2011 on road surfacing to improve, maintain, and prolong the life and condition of Buckinghamshire's network. 

Transport Cabinet Member Mark Shaw said that in addition to the annual maintenance by TfB, the County Council is making improvements to the network by developing new roads. He added:

"The multi-million pound investment on maintenance is only part of the overall approach the County Council has to continually improving and expanding the essential network of roads we have in Buckinghamshire."

"There are ongoing projects across the county, which are strengthening our network, from the Stocklake link road in Aylesbury to the Beaconsfield relief road, which open up the network a little bit further and relieve some of the pressure on more historic roads." 

"Using funding from central government and from developers, these essential schemes are supporting the growth and development of Buckinghamshire as a whole, as the county expands and more housing is built.”
