Roads and Pavement Problems

Tameside MBC have a team of inspectors patrolling the borough daily monitoring all highways (including footways) to ensure any defects are recorded and repaired.
Several teams are around the borough daily carrying out emergency and programmed highway works.

Annually a program is compiled to identify which roads will be resurfaced these schemes are identified and prioritised by using condition data from many different sources-
  • Road Assessment Vehicles (RAVs) carry out high speed data acquisition and recording of road surface conditions
  • Highways Inspections, recording highway condition and number of defects.
  • Engineering and local knowledge of road condition and type of treatment required.
  • Type of road and proximity to Schools, Bus routes, Businesses, etc.

The detail recorded in the above assessments determine what type of treatment a road requires from minor patching works to full structural construction.
