Principal Roads are all A and B roads that are not maintained by the Highways Agency. Non-principal roads are all other lower classified roads. Road condition statistics are published annually by the Department of Transport. Since 2012, the Council have remained within 1% of our target of 98% for the number of non-principal roads not requiring maintenance.
The last reported data for this measure showed that 3% of our non-principal roads required maintenance which is 1% below our target of 98%. The Council will continue to work with our highways contractor to improve this level of service in order to meet the target in future.
