Oxfordshire Highways – road maintenance briefing

A message from Eddie Gibb Head of Communications Oxfordshire County Council County councillors asked me for a briefing on highways maintenance and we thought it would be a useful for parishes and town councils too. I have attached the briefing, which is intended to explain our approach to road maintenance, with some facts and figures to show progress as well as the scale of the challenge. Hopefully the briefing answers some of the question you and your residents may have, as we know this is a live issue in many areas. Please feel free to circulate it within your area. I’d welcome feedback on the content so we can improve the format when we do an update in the autumn.
