ROADS and pavements across Ealing are to have £5.5m spent on them in the coming year.

The council will spend £4.1m on renewing roads and £500,000 on pavements. The road spending includes £1.2m approved last November.

In addition, Transport for London has awarded Ealing £870,000 to spend on improving main roads in the borough.

A survey of all the roads and pavements in the borough is carried out every year.

Surveyors walk the entire length of the road network looking for defects such as potholes, cracking, wheel-track rutting and other signs of deterioration and damage.

Each road is then given a condition rating on a scale of 1-100. Those with a low rating are considered to be in a good condition. Those with a high rating are judged to be poor and are targeted for resurfacing.

The higher the rating, the sooner the work will take place.

The full list of roads and footways scheduled for improvement is on www.ealing.gov.uk/downloads/download/2936/carriageway_resurfacing_works_2014-15
