star this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to exploring innovative ideas and processes for more environmentally friendly ways of constructing, repairing and maintaining road surfaces. The Department for Transport is aware of a number of initiatives, both here in England and overseas, in which recycled plastic and other waste product materials are added as a binding mix to asphalt.</p><p> </p><p>As part of the Live Labs research programme, in conjunction with the Association of Directors of Environment, Economy, Planning and Transport (ADEPT) and private partners, the Department for Transport announced in January 2019 funding of £1.6 million to Cumbria County Council to extend a trial for the selection and testing of recycled plastic in surfacing and structural treatments on the local road network. This trial will assess the suitability and durability of the plastics additives from minor patching work and pothole repairs through to major resurfacing.</p><p> </p><p>Technological innovation in road maintenance processes can also improve efficiency and reduce waste by recycling existing road material. Highways England is taking such an approach in reconstructing a 10-mile stretch of the A1(M) southbound carriageway between Leeming and the Ripon interchange.</p><p> </p><p>Information on road surface materials can be found in the Design Manual for Roads and Bridges: volume 2, part of a suite of documents published by Highways England.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>Highways England has no plans to fundamentally review the terms and conditions of its private finance initiative (PFI) road maintenance contracts, including the costs payable under those contracts.</p><p> </p><p>Highways England has previously reviewed its PFI contracts and concluded that cancelling or attempting to change them is unlikely to offer value for money. It should be noted that eight of Highways England’s eleven contracts in place are due to end in 2026/27.</p><p> </p><p>Highways England manages the costs due to its PFI providers strictly in accordance with the contracts and has taken advantage of cost saving opportunities where possible, for example through project re-financings. In 2018, the largest of its PFIs, the M25 contract, was refinanced achieving annual savings for each year of the remaining contract period of around £10 million.</p><p> </p><p>Highways England undertakes monthly and annual performance and financial assessments to ensure all charges levied by PFI Companies are compliant with the service level that is required to be provided under the contract.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Should service levels not be achieved, then in line with contractual payment mechanisms, deductions are applied and appropriate mitigating actions agreed to address any deficiencies.</p><p> </p><p><strong> </strong></p>
