Highway teams take advantage of sunshine

Have your say

HAMPSHIRE County Council’s highways teams are making the most of the warm and dry weather to make the county’s roads safer.

This financial year the highway teams have resurfaced about 13 miles of road, and treated the top layer of a further 137 miles of road.

Hampshire’s Operation Resilience roadworks programme for this year contains a further 130 road resurfacing jobs, 219 surface dressing schemes, 
as well as 65 drainage 
schemes and work on 153 footpaths.

Cllr Sean Woodward is Hampshire County Council’s executive member for economy, transport and environment.

He said: ‘Although we already have plenty of work lined up, we still want Hampshire residents to report any road problems and 
defects they see, so that we 
can make sure they are 
added to our programme of work and fixed as quickly as possible.’
