Improving our roads to drive our future

From April 2013 Island Roads will begin upgrading, enhancing and maintaining the Isle of Wight's 804 kms of rural and urban roads, 756 kms of footways, 29 kms of cycleways, over 12,000 street lights, 239 bridges, 612 structures, public car parks, signage, CCTV and street furniture.

This will include enhancement and resolution of some of the more challenging projects which are present as a result of the Island’s unique geology.

The work will be carried out by Island Roads, a partnership between the Isle of Wight Council, VINCI Concessions, Meridiam Infrastructure and Ringway. 

This is not a quick-fix solution, we are investing in the Island for the long-term. You should expect to see high quality work which will enhance safety, but more importantly, will remain that way for much longer with less need for repeat maintenance.
