Council announces essential road maintenance work for April and May

Trafford Council is informing residents of essential maintenance work taking place across the borough’s road network over the next two months.

The programme across the next eight weeks consists of around 70 road repair and improvement schemes in many areas of the borough.

These include Hale Road A538; Norris Road, Brooklands, the A56 junction 7 M60; Lulworth Avenue, Flixton; Shawe Road Flixton; Debenham Road/Moss Park Road/Bradfield Road, Stretford and Windermere Road, Urmston.  There are also a number of footway improvements schemes including various locations along Firs Road and the A56 in Broadheath. All schemes are weather dependant and householders will receive a letter ahead of the works.

The One Trafford Partnership are continuing to work on the outgoing 2022/23 programme, however 2023/24 highway improvements schemes will begin throughout April and May as we head into the summer months.

With over 500 miles of road network to maintain across Trafford, the programme uses a number of treatment methods depending on the needs of individual roads. Some roads will receive resurfacing and reconstruction treatment which consists of a new surface layer to improve the road condition.

Other roads will receive surface dressing, which is a preventative treatment to waterproof the existing surface and provide additional skid resistance. It will also help to prevent cracks and potholes forming, continuing to keep the road in good condition for years to come.

Cllr Stephen Adshead, Trafford Council’s Executive Member for Environmental Services, said: “I’m delighted that Trafford Council is continuing to invest in the road network – one of the borough’s most valuable assets. Continuing to do so is transforming journeys and enabling our communities to thrive and to connect.

“Any residents or businesses who may be affected by upcoming roadworks will be contacted directly by the highways team. Residents may receive a letter with details of individual schemes on their road or in some cases, a visit from a member of staff. Any diversions or temporary traffic lights will be signposted ahead of scheduled scheme start date so that everyone can plan their journeys.”
