Road maintenance in Hounslow
Hounslow’s highways have been managed under contract by Hounslow Highways since January 2013.
Since taking over, a significant amount of work has been undertaken including the resurfacing of approximately 206km of carriageways and 230km of footpaths, 15,093 street lights replaced with new LED lanterns, the refurbishment of five major structures, and the replacement of 13,336 traffic signs.
Hounslow Highways has worked hard to complete all of this whilst continuing to deliver street cleaning, removal of fly tips, and managing trees and grounds maintenance.
Quality of maintenance

The report which provides key information on numbers, condition and funding found that out of 32 London boroughs, only Hounslow has a maintenance backlog judged as 'low'. This shows how well Hounslow Highways is doing in maintaining the roads and highways in our borough.
