A509 and A422 Improvements

We were awarded £3.9m after a successful bid to improve our highways from the Department of Transport Challenge Fund which helps local councils to finance large projects. 

19 projects across the country received a share of a £75 million funding pot for essential road maintenance. The upgrade of the A509/A422 will help to support the East-West corridor transport links to major roads like the M1, A428 and A421.

The upgrade work will cost a total of £4.9m and included:

  • Extensive road resurfacing
  • Road surface treatments
  • White line painting
  • Safety improvements such as barriers at the side of the road
  • New signage and renew key route signage along the length to improve wayfinding
  • Improved drainage systems to help cope with higher volumes of surface water and reduce flooding
