‘Crisis point’ for potholes
Potholes are reaching crisis point, highway bosses warned today, adding that more cuts to maintenance budgets would be “catastrophic”.
As roads across the West still lay under water this morning, and many questioned the efficacy of drainage, the Local Government Association said decades of underfunding, recent severe winters and widespread flooding earlier this year, “compounded by the current Government cutting £500 million from roads maintenance budgets, means many councils are struggling to move beyond simply patching up a deteriorating network”.
It added that, should councils be stripped of even more funding in the Autumn Statement, many will find it nearly impossible to keep on top of road repairs.
The LGA said it would become critical should there be another harsh winter similar to the last, which caused £600 million of road damage.
