While major roads across the UK are operated and maintained by the Highways England (formally known as the
Highways Agency), West Sussex County Council is responsible for the upkeep and
integrity of the vast majority of the roads network serving the County.
Each year the team responsible for planning and carrying out necessary
maintenance to our road surfaces are challenged to keep the traffic flowing and
protect over 3988 km of road from deteriorating. In recent years the focus has
been on the network of main routes connecting towns and villages.
Recognising that there is a need now to improve a significant number of
“unclassified” roads, approximately 440km of our residential streets and rural
lanes, West Sussex has planned an investment of £30million over two years, (2014 – 2016), known as the Better Roads Programme.

Challenge Fund Bid
We have made a bid
under the Local Highways Challenge Fund for the development and implementation
of a strategic approach to footway and cycleway maintenance.
proposes improving the way we deliver footway and cycleway maintenance. West
Sussex County Council corporate objectives including supporting the economy,
facilitating active healthy modes of travel and supporting the environment by
making sustainable transport trips easier will be more integrated into our
day-to-day asset management approach.
This bid will specifically focus on
pedestrian and cycling asset improvements in strategic growth locations
identified by the Coast to Capital Local Enterprise Partnership [LEP]. This
proposal does not cover one single scheme but encompasses many small projects
that address problems on strategic routes/areas. Typical works will include a
review of signing/lining, surface improvements and road crossing points.
