Oldham Council is moving on with our £12m highways investment programme despite the current Coronavirus crisis.

Over the coming weeks and months our teams will be out across the borough surfacing and repairing roads, so they are in a good condition for pedestrians and drivers to use.

All works will be carried out in line with government social distancing rules.

Councillor Ateeque Ur Rehman, Cabinet Member for Neighbourhood Services, said: “We know these have, and continue to be, difficult times for everyone.

“A lot of our services have had to change and adapt the way they work to support residents during the current crisis.

“But it’s also important that we carry on with what, until just a few weeks ago, we would have called business as usual.

“Improving roads has always been a priority for us and we know residents feel strongly about this. Councillors probably get asked about roads more often than anything else.

“This continued investment shows we want to get the basics right and ensure that our roads are safe.”

By the end of the financial year 2022 we will have improved more than 170 roads across Oldham as part of the three-year investment programme.

We are currently finalising the programme of works for the coming months.

Once we’ve completed the schedule it will be available to look at via www.oldham.gov.uk/roadtreatment
