More than 6,500 potholes in Suffolk have been repaired since the start of the year as the Conservative County Council continues its all-out war to tackle the issue across Suffolk.
Suffolk County Council (SCC) says a further 950 pothole repairs are scheduled over the coming weeks and additional road gangs have been brought in to help with the county’s backlog.
An additional allocation of up to £2.4m is being provided by government to Suffolk. This will allow local road users to enjoy their journeys without having to dodge so many potholes.
This is on top of the £75 million of funding already given to councils from the Pothole Action Fund this year, as well as the additional £46 million boost for highways authorities announced just before Christmas.
The funding will also help to protect the roads from any future severe weather.
Whilst Jeremy Corbyn’s local representatives like to complain about anything they can think of, it is the Conservative Government that is providing this funding to improve local roads.
