Local Highways Maintenance Challenge Fund

In Autumn 2014 the government announced the creation of the Local Highways Maintenance Challenge Fund worth £575 million nationally split into two tranches over the next six years from 2015/16 to 2020/21.

The fund reflects the government’s commitment to ensure a well maintained local highway infrastructure and enables local highway authorities to bid for major maintenance projects that would otherwise be difficult to fund.

So far, the West of England authorities have submitted bids for tranche 1 and 2A of the fund, which can be viewed below.

Urban Lighting and Footway Improvements (North Somerset Council)

A403 Major Maintenance (Bristol and South Gloucestershire councils)

This scheme is a joint scheme between Bristol City and South Gloucestershire Councils and comprises major maintenance works on the A403 Corridor from Avonmouth Port to the M48 at Aust, to support economic development within the Avonmouth & Severnside Enterprise Area.

The scheme will provide enhanced facilities for sustainable transport modes whilst extending the life of the existing carriageway, footways, drainage and cycleway.

Our application form and its appendices are below. The accompanying web map gives details of existing infrastructure and the proposed repair and maintenance works.
