A total of 17 roads in West Kirby, Hoylake and Meols will be improved in the next few months.

They are among 200 across Wirral undergoing highway and pavement improvement works as part of the council’s annual maintenance programme.

The works are part of a £5.8 million pound investment in the network made possible by grant funding received through the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority.

The local authority says the roads being prioritised for repair have been identified using the results from independent condition survey, as well as inspection reports by highways staff, and enquiries from councillors and residents.

Wirral Council said: “Depending on the classification and condition of the road, one of three treatments will be applied as part of the programme. Hot Rolled Asphalt (HRA) is the most expensive of the three, but provides protection for up to 20 years – it tends to be used on main, heavy traffic routes in the borough.

“Surface Dressing can extend the life of the road surface by between eight and ten years, depending on the location, while Micro Asphalt is mostly used on local roads and streets and is laid over the existing road surface.

“All works are carried out in the most environmentally friendly way possible as crews and contractors work closely with suppliers to minimise the council’s greenhouse gas emissions and reduce waste.

“The programmed works are taking place alongside other ongoing maintenance works to repair other road surface issues, such as pot holes.

“Some residents might see patching works taking place before the scheduled surfacing works – people should be assured that these are preparation works; the main repairs will take place afterwards. And as with all of these kinds of programmes, the schedule is subject to change due to weather conditions.”
