Road statistics information on the condition of and expenditure on local authority roads and trunk roads in England.
Of the 151 local authorities that were sent road condition surveys, usable data were received from all but five. This was the highest response rate in several years. Local authorities across England who provided data for the appropriate years reported that:
- the proportion of the principal road network where maintenance should be considered was higher in 2012 to 2013 than in 2011 to 2012 for 30% of local authorities, 23% said it was the same, 47% said it was lower
- an estimated 6.5% of the principal road network in England received maintenance treatment in 2012 to 2013; on minor roads (B, C and U roads) this figure was 4.0%
