Devon has the largest road network in England with over 8,000 miles of highway and 3500 bridges.
With a total revenue budget of £43 million in 2013/14 we are responsible for the maintenance of the road network, including repairing potholes, looking after the drainage systems, cutting vegetation and winter gritting. We also look after 75,000 streetlights and 3,000 miles of footpaths and public rights of way.
In addition our capital funding budget of £39 million is used to carry out major works to restore value to the County’s roads, footways, highway structures, street lighting and traffic signals.
Decades of government under-funding and the impact of repeated severe weather events has created a huge backlog of maintenance now estimated at over £700m.
Below is a breakdown of some key services in this area and how much we are spending on them in 2013/14.
