Maintenance of dual carriageways

Every summer we carry out a maintenance programme on the dual carriageways in the county that we are responsible for.


This work includes cutting the grass on the central reservations and at the sides of the roads, picking up litter, emptying the gullies and drains, fixing any potholes, and any other bit of maintenance work that needs carrying out.

We've delayed this work by a month in 2021 so we're kinder to nature by letting the grass grow that bit longer and we give some native species longer to flower and seed.

Most of the dual carriageways will only have lane closures, but we'll need to fully close some of them to enable the work to be carried out safely. We'd like to apologise for any inconvenience caused.

All work could be delayed if the weather is really bad.
