Extra cash for potholes for the third year running

We are all well aware of how important good roads are for everyone.  Not only are they vital for local communities and for businesses but they are essential to growing our economy and supporting better access to jobs, education and housing.

That’s why, for the third year running we are investing an additional £5m into tackling potholes and improving our roads and the journeys we make.

This additional funding is part of a package of £30m and includes an extra allocation of £20,000 for each local county councillor to help them deal with more localised highways issues.

Maintaining such a huge road network, (more than 6,000km)  is a constant challenge for us.  That’s  why we need to make the best use of every pound we invest and focus where we can on schemes which deliver the best value and longer-term benefits.

The full 2019/20 Highways and Transport Capital programme will be presented at our meeting of the Cabinet for approval next week.
