Councils Receive Share Of Emergency Road Repair Fund

£183.5 Million To Repair Roads Damaged By Severe Weather

Councils in England have learnt how much money to expect from the government's emergency fund to repair roads damaged by the recent severe weather. This £183.5 million investment follows a particularly harsh winter and will contribute to fixing more than three million potholes. The money is being distributed now to ensure that work starts soon, with the expectation that the majority will be complete for the summer holidays. 116 Local Highway Authorities in England will receive a share of the funding, and Transport for London will distribute its payment to the London Boroughs. The Authorities will then have to reveal to the public where the money has been spent via their websites - so there will be some accountability. Furthermore, the Chancellor of the Exchequer recently confirmed – during the budget of March 2014 – that a further £200 million pounds will be made available to repair potholes in the financial year 2014 - 2015.

I think it's because the Welsh Gov is responsible for the maintenance of all Welsh roads. So I'm guessing any additional funding must come from the Welsh Gov. I think it's the same for Scotland too. Here's an extract from the Welsh Assemble website: The Welsh Government has powers over the following areas relating to roads in Wales: It is the Highway Authority for all trunk roads in Wales (i.e. all motorways and certain A roads) and is responsible for the maintenance of those roads. This maintenance is carried out on behalf of the Welsh Government by three Trunk Road Agencies – one each for north, mid and south Wales – which act in partnership with local authorities within their area. Local authorities are also the Highway Authorities with responsibility for the maintenance and improvement of non-trunk roads (those roads which are not motorways or main A roads). We are responsible for: Constructing new roads and improving existing ones. Renewing roads, bridges and other structures. The day to day maintenance, including winter maintenance.

what has happened to the WELSH ROADS THEY NEED REPAIRING AS WELL WHY IS IT THE ENGLISH GET FIRST EVERY TIME WE ARE PART OF THE UK AS WELL!!!!
