In response to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the council’s highway maintenence service, Streets Ahead, is working to prioritise services across the city. Over coming weeks this may mean stopping some works to ensure we can prioritise emergency, critical and key activities.
This is a developing situation and one which both the council and its contractor, Amey, will be monitoring carefully and responding to as appropriate. The health of our workforce remains a top priority and we are taking all necessary steps to ensure staff are supported during this time.
Undoubtedly, we expect the current situation will have an impact on our ability to deliver services at the same capacity and so, our programme will be subject to change with a focus on delivering works that are critical, first and foremost.
We would ask that when reporting issues to us you consider the nature of the report and its importance given the circumstances. Public and staff safety issues will be addressed above all other jobs and our scheduled programme is currently being reviewed.
If you have recently received notice of works for your road, then please be aware that any dates proposed could now be subject to change. Similarly, if you are awaiting a response to an enquiry, this may take longer than originally anticipated.
We will update Twitter as we prioritise our services with the resources we have available.
