Potholes and road repair programmes

Find out about the road repairs and improvements planned to take place across the borough.

Planned road repairs

Every year we spend £1.5 million repairing potholes and roads across the borough.

We’re also putting an extra £12 million into road and footpath repairs between 2018-2020. This is to make life better for everyone who lives and works in the borough.

These are our planned road repairs for Rochdale.

Annual progress report - pothole action fund 2016/2017

In April 2016 the Department for Transport identified extra funding for councils to carry out road repairs to stop the formation of potholes. Rochdale Borough Council received a grant of £121,000 for road repairs.
This was extra funding in addition to the planned 2016/2017 revenue and capital investment budgets.
