As part of Capita’s strategic partnership with North Tyneside Council, we are responsible for managing their highway assets and introducing and delivering highway asset management practices across their entire highway service. Over the last few years we have delivered a programme of activities that adopts the asset management practices advocated by central government which has enabled North Tyneside Council to achieve band 2 funding allocations across its highway services.
How did we achieve this?
The success of North Tyneside Council’s HAMP 2012-17, is evidenced by the year on year improved road condition indicator (RCI). The improved road condition indicator (RCI) is a direct result of the preventative maintenance strategies adopted in the HAMP. This has been achieved through adoption and delivery of preventative maintenance activities which has ensured the right road treatment at the right time, resulting in the improved RCI.
The continued use of alternative preventative surfacing treatments such as surface dressing rather than full reconstructive has enabled a greater percentage of maintenance activities on the road network, hence an improved RCI and a 90% repudiation rate for third party claims.
We recognise that we needed to invest in a road improvement scheme now to resolve the existing traffic issues but also to make sure the road was able to cope with the significant increase in demand by 2030.North Tyneside Council

“The successful delivery of this major highways project has had an instant positive impact on the Authority’s highway network. The scheme has been challenging and complex but was delivered with minimal disruption to the travelling public. The benefits to all highway users can clearly be seen.”North Tyneside Council’s Highways & Infrastructure Manager, Mark Newlands
