A £7.7million budget has been allocated to improve roads across the Royal Borough over the next year.

The budget includes £2.7million for work such as resurfacing with £240,000 specifically put aside to repair roads damaged by the terrible winter weather.

The rest of the funding will be used to maintain and improve bridges, cycle schemes, verges, road markings and more.

Cllr Phill Bicknell, cabinet member for highways, transport and Windsor, said: “This year’s annual works will restore infrastructure, preventing the need for more expensive works in the future and creating new features including crossings and widened carriageways. It will also launch schemes to boost safety and make cycling easier.

“Additionally we are looking at increasing funding for road repairs in this financial year in response to extreme weather over the winter. This would build on the £1.7m we have already approved for resurfacing.”

The investments include: £100,000 for traffic management, £50,000 for road safety marking programmes, £255,000 for bridge assessments, £150,000 for bridge parapet, £65,000 for safer routes to schools improvements and £120,000 for local safety schemes.

There will be £75,000 for improving the cycling infrastructure, plus £50,000 for reducing congestion and making air quality improvements - £350,000 specifically being provided for Clewer and Dedworth neighbourhood improvements.

Last year the Royal Borough fixed 3,500 potholes during the two-month pothole challenge.
