A programme worth more than £4m will have repaired more than 100 roads across Wirral by the end of the year.

Almost 120 roads are either being resurfaced or repaired by the borough’s council this year, with priority given to those in most urgent need of attention.

The work is seen as important in persuading people that it is safe to cycle around Wirral, as the council looks for ways to reduce the borough’s emissions and tackle the climate emergency.

Work has been completed on many of the roads, although eight streets listed on the original programme have been dropped due to delays or clashes with utility works.

Wirral Council said these locations will be investigated and considered for next year’s programme.

Cllr Liz Grey, chair of the council’s Environment and Transport Committee, said: “I am proud that Wirral’s roads are generally in a good condition.

“Having a well-maintained and safe network of roads and pavements is important to all users, cyclists and pedestrians, as well as drivers.

“As a council our performance is well-rated compared to other authorities.”

The Labour councillor added: “We take our duty to maintain Wirral’s highway network very seriously, but with more than 730 miles of road in the borough there is simply not enough time or funding to resurface all the roads that are reported to us; works have to be prioritised using a risk-based approach.

“Many of these works take place over the summer months because they are dependent on favourable weather conditions.

"It is encouraging to know that although there have been some inevitable delays as a result of bad weather, the programme has progressed well.”

The council’s contractors use a variety of materials depending on factors such as the make-up of the road surface, but hot rolled asphalt is the preferred choice for the main, heavy traffic routes in the borough and can last up to 20 years.

Another method, surface dressing, can extend the life of the road surface by 10-20 years, depending on the location.

Micro asphalt is used mostly on local roads and streets and is laid over the existing road surface.

It tends to last around 10 years depending on how much traffic uses the road.

As well as the work carried out on roads, around 80 footways across Wirral have also been repaired or reconstructed this summer.
