The 5th Edition of the ‘Highway Maintenance Market Report – UK 2022-2026 has been published by AMA Research. Incorporating original input and primary research, the report contains an in-depth analysis of the UK highway maintenance sector, including market structure, recent market and future trends, major spending programmes and supplier and regional analysis.
Transport continues to represent one of the largest areas of Government expenditure – it has generally been recognised that investment in infrastructure will assist economic growth across the UK, as well as contributing significantly towards the present Government’s desire to rejuvenate under-performing areas of the UK as part of its ‘Levelling Up’ strategy.
The industry continues to complain about a lack of investment in the road network, which has led to long-term deterioration and a severe backlog in terms of upgrades and maintenance. Many local authorities favour a move towards some form of guaranteed, longer-term funding model (ideally between 5-10 years), which would assist with planning and help drive greater efficiencies.
Investment continues to improve infrastructure for more sustainable forms of transport, such as cycling and walking. This is especially apparent within many of the UK’s major cities – in London, for example, Transport for London (TfL) has delivered an estimated 270km of high-quality cycle routes since 2016, increasing the percentage of Londoners living within 400m of the cycle network.
