Bradford South Area Committee


This report details the allocation of the capital highway maintenance budget to the Non-Classified road network and Surface Dressing sites for 2021/22 in Bradford South.


The capital highway maintenance element of the Local Transport Plan for all classification of road for Bradford in 2021/22 is anticipated to be £4,286,000.

It is essential that local highway maintenance continues to be prioritised, reflecting the economic and social importance to communities and the need to safeguard the largest single local public asset. As such the allocation is to be prioritised on those roads in most need of maintenance.

The varying types and classifications of roads are routinely monitored by standardised survey equipment. The sites chosen for inclusion are those that have been shown to be in the most need of repair on the most recent survey. This is supplemented by those roads that are known to have suffered increased deterioration due to the ageing process and recent winter weather.

An initial recommended selection of Non-Classified and Surface Dressing sites is included in Appendices 1 and 2 (respectively) attached.

The list of Non-Classified resurfacing sites (Appendix 1) shows an initially recommended priority programme, based on overall condition to the value of £300,000. This is anticipated to be the budget available for Bradford South. A reserve list is also presented within Appendix 1. Members may seek to substitute schemes from the recommended programme for those on the reserve list as is deemed necessary to meet local highway maintenance concerns. Also, if it transpires that it is not feasible to progress any of the originally selected schemes, these will be substituted with alternatives from the reserve lists.

The suggested programme of Surface Dressing sites, totalling 105,157m2 (approx. £315,471) is attached as Appendix 2.

In order that programme delivery can be achieved within the appropriate financial year it is imperative that the committee approves a works programme at this stage.

Bradford South Area Committee


The total value of schemes on the Appendix 1 list exceeds the likely allocated spend on Non-Classified roads for this financial year. This is in the region of £1.5 million for the whole of the Bradford Metropolitan District, which would equate to around £300,000 for Bradford South.

Indicative funding has been identified for each scheme but the actual cost will be determined through the scheme development process. The identification of a reserve list of works is necessary in order to offset schemes that inevitably will be delayed as a consequence of unforeseen circumstances such as work by statutory bodies and conflicts with other major schemes etc. There may also need to be further adjustment to the programme following the more detailed costing process. Any sites that are deferred for whatever reason will roll over to the following years list.

The total value of the schemes identified in Appendix 2 does not exceed the capital allocation for Surface Dressing, consequently it is the intention that work will be completed on all of those sites listed, however it is possible that some of the schemes may need to be deferred, again likely due to conflicts with works by other bodies, statutory undertakers etc. Any schemes that are deferred for whatever reason will roll over to the following years programme.


A failure to prioritise highway maintenance schemes based upon condition and safety survey data will result in an increased requirement for reactive maintenance and lead to a reduction in road safety conditions and an associated increase in successful insurance claims against the Council.


There are no specific issues arising from this report. The course of action proposed is in accordance with the Councils power as Highway Authority.



GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS IMPACTS There is no impact on the Council’s own and the wider District’s carbon footprint and emissions from other greenhouse gases arising from this report.

COMMUNITY SAFETY IMPLICATIONS Effective maintenance of the highway network is essential to ensure the safe passage of pedestrians and road users alike.

Bradford South Area Committee HUMAN RIGHTS ACT In formatting the proposals, due regard has been given to the Human Rights Act and there are no implications which have been identified.



The suggested programmes have been determined on the basis of condition surveys, hence the proposed level of funding may differ from ward to ward for the programme year. However it is considered that, over a number of years, monies expended on maintenance works within each Area Committee will even out (proportionate to the length, nature and condition of highways).

AREA COMMITTEE ACTION PLAN IMPLICATIONS The development and implementation of schemes included in this report support priorities within the Bradford South Area Committee Ward Plans.




That the Bradford South Area Committee adopts the recommended schemes detailed in Appendix 1 and 2.

That the Bradford South Area Committee adopts the recommended schemes detailed in Appendix 1 and 2, with any substitutions (to a similar value) from the reserve list in Appendix 1.


That the Bradford South Area Committee approves the proposed programme of works as shown in Appendix 1 and 2.
