Department for Transport capital funding

The Department for Transport (DfT) provides capital funding for Highway Maintenance using a needs-based formula based on the highway assets each local authority is responsible for.

Additional funding is also made available for authorities who can demonstrate that they take a risk based whole lifecycle asset management approach to their highway maintenance programmes. A copy of our asset management strategy can be found on the roads and transport policies and plans webpage.

Information on how allocations are calculated and details of allocations for 2022 to 2025 can be found on the highway maintenance funding webpages.

Our current and future programmes of capital maintenance can be found on our highway maintenance investment programme webpage.
