Our resurfacing plan

Read our resurfacing programme (PDF, 281.5 KB) to find roads and pavements in Kent that will be resurfaced during the current financial year.

You can also find all of our planned resurfacing and road closures on the national roadworks.org database.

How we identify which roads to repair

We gather and analyse information from:

  • regular inspections – these can be weekly up to annually, depending on how busy the road or path is and how important it is locally and economically
  • annual surveys using specialist equipment – these include a mixture of mechanical and visual surveys which provide detailed information about the condition of roads and paths
  • reports from councillors, parish councils and community groups – we work closely with parish and district councils to listen to their thoughts on what is important locally.
  • reports from residents – anyone can report a problem on the road.

This data is used to assess the condition of the entire network of over 5,000 miles of road and 4,000 miles of pavements.

We use the data to find out the most cost effective type of repair and make a yearly resurfacing plan.

To achieve value for money, we prioritise roads that are likely to need costly repairs in the future.
