“Staffordshire’s huge road network is vital for keeping our county connected and its residents and businesses on the move.
This year we are investing over £50 million in a range of major projects, vital local improvements, and general road maintenance, including an additional £15.5M funded by the County Council to fix more roads.
However, we recognise that there is always more to be done and we continue to lobby central Government for the money necessary to keep Staffordshire’s roads in the condition we expect and ensure local communities and businesses are able to see the benefits of an improved highway network”.
