Each year the Asphalt Industry Alliance (AIA) commissions a survey of highways departments in all local authorities in England and Wales. The aim of the survey is to build a picture of the general condition of local roads and the levels of maintenance activity as well as the levels of funding required to ensure that they are in reasonable condition.
By collating and publishing this information for local authorities, the AIA seeks to give a voice to the views of those responsible for maintaining the vast majority of the road network.
The 2016 survey paints an unsettling picture and indicates that further decline lies ahead for our local roads.
The 2016 ALARM survey is available to download.
