Pot Holes- Councils Need More Resources!

Pot holes have ravaged the Local Road Network, both locally and nationally.

We need more Government resources to deliver a maintenance programme that takes the highway surface back to pre austerity levels, here in the City.

The danger to the local economy and the national network from pot holes shouldn’t be underestimated.

Here in Wednesfield North we have ben identifying and urging repairs to Potholes through out the winter. Some have been attended too, and some haven’t.

Resources are very scarce at the moment. But repairing pot holes is one thing, placing much more importance to whole road surface relaying, in a huge programme across the UK, would be a very popular thing to do.

The overall safety of our highways is an important issue. I would urge the Government to deliver many more resources than they currently have, so that road users from, bikes, to  motorists, to HGV vehicles can ply the roads quickly without fear of vehicular damage, or personal safety fears. IMG_5047
