Highway repairs and maintenance

Harrow's highways

The highways network is Harrow’s largest asset and includes 1615 roads over 457 km in length and has a gross replacement cost of over £800 million. There is currently a significant backlog of structural maintenance that is valued at approximately £100 million. It is therefore important to make best use of the resources available for repairs and maintenance to ensure the network remains in a serviceable condition. The council has put in place a system to review prioritise all highways maintenance defects to ensure resources are used in the most effective way through two main areas of work:

  • reactive maintenance which deals with immediate risks to the public from minor defects
  • structural maintenance which addresses large scale refurbishment due to significant deterioration of the highway structure
