Planned Maintenance

Nottingham City Council has a statutory responsibility to ensure roads are maintained and this forms the basis of our annual road surface maintenance plan.

Our Highways team do regular inspections on all the roads in the city to check for problems and all roads are driven and walked regularly by inspectors. Our inspectors look for potholes and surface wear as well as assessing which roads need to be added to the annual road surface maintenance plan.

The plan is a list of the roads most in need of attention be that small scale patching and pothole repair or completely resurfacing. We then work through the list of the most in need roads based on the funding received from central government.

All reports are looked at and works are prioritised according to severity of the issue. If we don’t act on an issue this could mean that it does not yet cause concerns, but it will be logged and regularly review to see if the issue gets worse, to stop this becoming a safety risk.

Full resurfacing

Fully resurfacing a road is the complete replacement of the road surface. This can take between a few days or weeks depending on the length of road being resurfaced.

How will this affect residents?

Affected residents will be notified by letter in advance of the works and via on-street notices. Signed diversions will be in place for through traffic and access for residents will be maintained at all times.

Microsurfacing

Every year we complete a programme of road maintenance in neighbourhoods which seals and waterproofs the surface to help protect the road from further damage.

On the streets due for microsurfacing the existing surface will be overlaid using a specialist vehicle with a mix of bitumen and aggregate. This process is known as ‘microsurfacing’ and helps prolong the life of the road surface.

Microsurfacing is a vital preventative measure which slows the deterioration of the surface and keeps the roads in good condition reducing the need for more substantial and costly repairs. Our annual maintenance programme aims to stay ahead of the game, and help keep Nottingham moving by preserving a smooth and safe surface.

More on our microsurfacing programme here.

Micro surfacing

How does this affect residents?

Affected residents will be notified by letter in advance of the works and via on-street notices.

The process is quite quick and can be completed in a few hours but the road does need to be clear of parked vehicles before work can begin. Residents on the affected streets will be notified and we will work to provide ad hoc access if required during the works.

Please ensure any vehicles you own or are responsible for are removed from the road between 07:30 and 16:30 whilst the work is being carried out. This will allow the process to move much more smoothly.

 

Slurry Seal

Sealing the footway with a new top layer that will cost effectively increase the service life of the footpath.

How will this affect residents?

Affected residents will be notified by letter in advance of the works and via on-street notices.

The pavement will be closed while work takes place but a safe, signed diversion will be in place. Work should not impact residents vehicle access for the most part except for when work is immediately outside of a property. Residents on the affected streets will be notified and we will work to provide ad hoc access if required during the works.

Patching

This is repairing sections of the road that have seen significant damage/ware as well as proactively replacing sections of the road before they become potholes or other defects.

How will this affect residents?

Affected residents will be notified by letter in advance of the works and via on-street notices. Access to properties will be maintained at all times.
