Planned maintenance

Read our road and pavement programme (PDF, 501.5 KB) to find roads and pavements in Kent that we are planning to improve during the current financial year.

If resurfacing is planned near your home you will be told, but you can read more about what happens when your road is going to be improved.

You can also find out how we decide which roads to repair.

Find all planned works and road closures on our roadworks page, including a roadworks map.

How we decide which roads to repair

  • Regular inspections - from weekly to annually, depending on how busy the road or pavement is and how important it is locally and economically.
  • Annual surveys using specialist equipment - a mixture of mechanical and visual surveys which provide detailed information about the condition of roads and pavements.
  • 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.

From these inspections and reports we prioritise the sections of highway that need to be renewed and areas that are suitable for preservation. Preservation extends the life of the road or pavement and prevent costly repairs in the future.
