HTW-13-21 - Highways Capital Programme 2020/21 and 2021/22

Decision Maker: Cabinet Member for Highways, Transport and Waste

Decision status: Recommendations Approved (subject to call-in)

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


To report the work undertaken in the Council’s 2020/21 Highways Capital Programme.


To agree the schemes to be included in the Council’s 2021/22 Highways Capital Programme.






I approve that


(i)             The works undertaken in 2020/21 be noted.


(ii)            The proposed funding allocations and scheme lists for 2021/22, as outlined in Appendix 3 of this report, be approved.



This decision was published on 13 April 2021 and will come into force on 21 April 2021.            


Reasons for the decision:

To ensure that the Highways Capital Programme is prioritised and targeted towards schemes that meet the Council’s transport policies and goals.


Alternative options considered:

The proposed schemes and expenditure included in the proposed Highways Capital Programme are considered to provide the best package of measures to meet the Council’s objectives, to maintain the highway infrastructure efficiently, and to selectively improve it to deliver transport schemes to support community aspirations where these are consistent with the goals, objectives and transport strategies set out in the LTP.


Other reasons / organisations consulted

Wiltshire’s third Local Transport Plan (LTP) was developed in consultation with local councils, community groups and other stakeholders.  The Highways Capital Programme has subsequently been developed to reflect the aims of LTP3, and the transport aspirations of local people.


Many of the improvement projects recommended for funding in 2021/22 have been identified by the local community through the development of community area plans, area transport strategies, and school travel plans, or through the Area Board’s Community Area Transport Groups (CATG), or have been initiated by Swindon and Wiltshire’s Local Enterprise partnership.


The proposed highways major maintenance programme is based on identified need, and the main surfacing proposals have been reviewed by the relevant Area Boards or the local CATG.
