The last meeting of this administration's Cabinet on April 9th will approve spending on the borough's highways maintenance of £3.5 million. Normally TfL would contribute an additional capital sum for spending on the borough's principal roads but this has been 'paused' under their 5 Year Plan, representing a loss to the borough of £882,000. However, each London borough has been asked to submit two principal roads for consideration for maintenance work and Brent Council has submitted Wembley High Road and Kilburn High Road. A decision is likely by the end of April.
The report to Cabinet points out that Highway infrastructure is the most visible, well-used and valuable physical asset owned by Brent Council. Highway assets include:
- 505 km (315 miles) of roads;
- 847 km (529 miles) of pavements;
- 53 bridges and structures;
- 24,500 road gullies;
- 10,000 street trees; and
- 22,848 street lights and other illuminated street furniture.
Spending will be on:
- Major and minor pavement reconstruction;
- Major Road resurfacing;
- Preventative maintenance;
- Improvements to the public realm, and
- Renewal of Road Markings

Looking at your English Road 2018 picture, Martin, could I ask WM readers driving along such roads to avoid the pools of water as far as possible as the frog spawning time is almost upon us?
