This article reports that the report of the 2000 National Road maintenance Condition Survey on the condition of roads and footways in England and Wales has been published. The report presents the results of two main survey, a visual survey of defects such as cracking, rutting and pothole, which monitors visible changes in the surface condition of the road network and a survey of the structural conditions of motorways, trunk roads and local authority principal roads using specialized equipment which can identify where there may be a need for major maintenance treatment. The structural conditions of English motorways was unchanged at the very good level achieved in 1999. Trunk roads in England improved in 2000. The separate survey of visual defects on trunk roads shows that there has been little change since the mid-1990s.
