Works Programme Delivery Support

Works Programme Delivery Support


Croydon’s highways team was short of staff, causing additional pressures on senior management to manage and deliver their annual works programme, a high profile portfolio of work.


  • Allocate a resource twice a week to deal with the delivery of the works programme and other issues as they arose.
  • Work with staff, help them take ownership of delivering the works programme and improve current practices, freeing some of their time.
  • Develop longer-term solutions with regards to the preparation, managing and delivering the works programme, tackling issues at source.
  • Establish a coring programme for data collection and tar identification.


Through this project, Croydon Council benefitted from having:

  • Assisted senior management in delivering the works programme.
  • Reduced the average treatment cost per sqm by 30% by selecting the right materials at the correct depths.
  • Doubled the number of schemes carried out and increased the overall area maintained by 70%.
  • Expanded the maintenance strategy to include an array of treatment options suitable for the different site circumstances.
