Footways schemes


Footways in Milton Keynes total around 1450 kilometres with a variety of surface types ranging from tarmac to block paving, estates are generally constructed entirely of one type of the other. It is the authorities objective to replace like for like where practical, however in order to manage this asset it may be necessary to alter the material type to benefit management of the highway.

The detailed approach to footways/redways is outlined in the lifecycle plan, this determines how schemes are prioritised in line with the split between preventative treatment schemes and needs based schemes in order to achieve a cost effective balance of preserving footways/redways that have not yet fully deteriorated and fixing those that have, schemes will be built up independent in each category.

Surveys are carried out annually to determine condition and provide priorities and programme lists with costs for each treatment type.

The capital investment realised by the 'Prudential Borrowing' has enabled an initial £6m investment over 2 years (2012 to 2014) to address the very worst sections of the network, this has arrested the decline and allowed the authority to start to plan towards a higher percentage of preventative treatments from 2016.
