More money for local roads

I have been pressing the government for more financial assistance to create better maintained, safer and less congested roads.

The Autumn Statement has produced  more cash for these purposes. Wokingham Borough will benefit with an additional £230,000 from the Potholes Fund next year, whilst West Berkshire will receive £336,000. The Wokingham budget for highways maintenance receives £2.36 m of support, and West Berkshire £3.836m.

There are additional funds available which Councils can bid for for particular projects which bust congestion, remove pinch points, improve safety and raise the standards of maintenance.
