Highways capital programme for 2021-22

Due to the impact of COVID-19, there have been some delays in the design and delivery of the programme and some schemes. One Trafford prioritise staff health and safety above all else. The highway works are continuing for the safety of the travelling public and to protect the condition of the roads. Following government guidelines, additional control measures have been put in place to maintain the health and safety of our colleagues during this period.

The current resurfacing programme consists of 44 schemes. These schemes have been scheduled for delivery up to March 2022, weather permitting. You can view the full list of the schemes.

Each scheme has been given a forecasted start date. However, road improvements are subject to:

  • Changes in weather
  • Existing underground utilities
  • Upcoming events

This means expected start dates or the duration of a scheme may be delayed.

If your road is to be resurfaced

If you live on a road which is to be resurfaced, we will contact you via a letter. The letter will be delivered to you approximately one to two weeks before the expected start date of the works. The letter will include details such as:

  • When the works will be taking place
  • The sections of the road to be surface (e.g. from one junction to another or the entire road)
  • If the works will be carried out in the daytime or night-time
  • The times in which the road will be closed
  • Parking arrangement (e.g. no parking or restricted parking)
  • Bin collection arrangements
  • Contact details should you have any further enquiries

We will also place signs on the road to tell you when the works are planned. Closer to the time of the works, we will place cones to ensure we have full access to the road surface.

What to do while works are taking place on your road

While your road is being resurfaced, we aim to keep access to your road and property maintained where possible.

Please ensure all cars are off the road when we commence works. Arrangements can be made to deal with traffic movement only if it’s safe, practical and we are forewarned. However, this will depend on the extent of the works and the size of your road. A traffic marshal maybe on be on-site during operational hours to assist with matters. They will be able to answer your questions and assist you with access to your property.

What we do when resurfacing

When a road is on the list, it means it has been identified by our highway officers and engineers for improvements work.

There are a number of different methods used to resurface a road. These methods depend on the road itself and its current condition. These methods include:

  • Resurfacing - this consists of planing the existing surface off up to 50mm in depth, followed by a new surface layer to seal the road and/or footway from water ingress
  • Reconstruction – this involves replacing the road and / or footway to depths over 50mm, to re-establish structural integrity and ensure that water ingress is prevented
  • Preventative surface treatment methods, such as ‘micro-asphalt’ – this is a fine layer of asphalt sprayed onto the existing surface, with additives and small chippings. Whilst this treatment will not change carriageway levels or improve ride quality in the same manners as resurfacing or reconstruction, the layer will seal the surface from water ingress, which is a root source of potholes

You can find out more about how Trafford’s highway network is managed through the Highways Infrastructure Asset Management Plan (HIAMP).

Resurfacing schemes

The programme is subject to changes whereby more schemes may be added to the schedule throughout the year.

Similarly, some schemes may be removed if due to some circumstances out of our control, for example utility works, seasonal hedge growth / nesting season, or private construction. This information will be updated regularly, when schemes are completed or change.
