This statistical release present information on the condition of local authority roads and trunk roads in England.
Overall 24% of the local authority principal road network needed further investigation to check whether the existing level of skidding resistance was acceptable over the period 2009/10 - 2011/12. This compares to 25% from the previous three-year period.
The proportion of the trunk motorway network likely to require planned maintenance within a year has fallen from 6% in 2003 to 3% in 2012, with the proportion for trunk A roads falling from 11% to 4% over the same period.
In 2012, 5% of the trunk motorway network and 13% of the trunk A road network required further investigation to assess whether the level of skidding resistance was acceptable.
In 2011/12, £3.0 billion was spent on the maintenance of local authority managed roads compared to £3.1 billion in 2010/11 and £3.3 billion in 2009/10 (all figures are quoted in 2011/12 prices).
The Highways Agency spent £0.8 billion on the maintenance of trunk roads and motorways in 2011/12, the same as in 2010/11 (all figures are quoted in 2011/12 prices).
