Decision required to approve the annual Highways and Transport capital investment programme.


Helen Fisher

“Good roads and transport schemes are hugely important to this council, to residents and to businesses, not just for getting to where we need to be, but also for underpinning a flourishing economy.


That’s why this year we will once again be investing taxpayers’ money where it is needed most, including for the third year an extra £5m to help tackle potholes.


Each county councillors has also been allocated an extra £20,000 to prioritise local highways improvements and I look forward to see how this extra investment will benefit local communities.”


Helen Fisher, Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport
