North Tyneside Council recognises that the condition of roads and pavements is a priority for residents.
This year (2020/21) around £4.6million is being invested in the borough’s highway network.
Road resurfacing is carried out when the road surface or its underlying layers have deteriorated to the point that they need to be replaced. The damaged layers are removed and new material is laid.
Micro-asphalt provides a new surface and seals the underlying road to prevent the intrusion of water, a major cause of deterioration. It is a preventative treatment, extending the life of the road and avoiding the need for much costlier road replacements further down the line.
The annual roads resurfacing and maintenance programme is delivered for North Tyneside Council by its technical services partner, Capita.
For more information about how the council decides which roads to improve, please visit the Highway Asset Management section.
