Each year the Asphalt Industry Alliance (AIA) commissions a survey of highways departments in all local authorities in England and Wales. The aim of the survey is to build a picture of the general condition of local roads and the levels of maintenance activity as well as the levels of funding required to ensure that they are in reasonable condition.
By collating and publishing this information for local authorities, the AIA seeks to give a voice to the views of those responsible for maintaining the vast majority of the road network.

The annual national survey of local road network condition and funding published today (14 March 2013) reveals a crumbling road crisis of increasing concern, renewing calls for Government support for increased and longer term funding.
The 18th Annual Local Authority Road Maintenance (ALARM) Survey was completed by 75 per cent of councils across England and Wales and reports that the number of potholes filled over the last year rose to over two million, an increase of 29 per cent on the previous year.
