Project 30 - Highways maintenance and replacement

Last Modified August 21, 2014


Project 30 is one of several  'Revitalising Blackpool' schemes set to transform the town for local residents. 

It sees an investment of £30m across more than 40 miles of roads that will be replaced or repaired.

We started the project in 2011 and aim to have finished the improvements by summer 2014.

As well as the roads that are being repaired (see below) as part of Project 30, we have also been able to use funding from the Department for Transport to repair the following roads:

Ansdell Road, Beech Avenue, Bloomfield Road, Central Drive, Chapel Road, Clifton Drive, Clifton Road, Egerton Road, Grange Road, Highfield Road, Hornby Road, Knowsley Avenue, Mere Road, Mowbray Drive, Mythop Road, Reads Avenue, Warley Road, Whinney Heys Road, Whinpark Avenue.

 

 

What is being replaced?

Project 30 was developed using a condition and treatment survey carried out for every road in the borough. This survey provided a detailed assessment of the condition of footways and carriageways. The cost for each treatment combines to provide the overall estimate for the Project 30 scheme. All sections of the network were graded according to their condition to enable the funding to be prioritised to the roads in the worst condition.

Not all roads in the town will need repairs, but there will be some footways and carriageways which require fully replacing and some where only sections need attention.

The project does include some streets where the main source of damage is overriding and parking of cars on the front section of flagged footways. Whilst the council does not condone this practice, it must deal with the damage it causes.

Where the rear of the footways is generally in reasonable condition, the proposed treatment for these is to take out the row of flags affected and to replace this with a material which will flex rather than break and lead to trip hazards. This treatment has already been carried out in a number of areas across the town to good effect, and does provide a safe functional walkway with a much reduced maintenance liability.
