Members of the Doncaster Council cabinet =are expected to rubber-stamp the acceptance of around £5.1 million for road improvements later this month.
A report to cabinet doesnt identify any specific projects but said the refurbishment of highways will ‘help improve the look’ in many areas and it will ‘reduce the incidence of weed growth’, according to a article in the Doncaster Free Press.
Lee Garrett, Head of service for Waste and highway infrastructure at Doncaster Council, said: “The additional money from the DfT will enable us to undertake additional highway maintenance works, thereby reducing ongoing risks associated with roads and footways that are in need of repair.
“There will be an improvement to the local environments meeting aspirations of residents while supporting both internal and external workforces in jobs to deliver the projects.
“The limit and extent of the work will be based on prioritised condition assessments of the highway assets across the borough and agreed by cabinet member Coun Joe Blackham. The works undertaken to assist in reducing the extensive accumulation of non-funded maintenance needs across the complete highway network.”
