“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.”
