LGA responds to Pothole Partnership plan and AA figures on pothole claims

The Local Government Association (LGA) responds to a five-point plan by the Pothole Partnership and AA figures showing pothole-related incidents reached a five-year high

Responding to a five-point plan by the Pothole Partnership and AA figures showing pothole-related incidents reached a five-year high, Cllr Darren Rodwell, transport spokesperson for the Local Government Association, said:

“Councils share the concerns of all road users with the state of our roads and are doing all they can to tackle the £14 billion backlog of road repairs, including learning from and adopting innovative techniques.

“Greater, long-term and year-on-year consistency of funding for the maintenance of all parts of our highways will help them achieve this.

“The Government should award council Highways Departments five-yearly funding allocations, to bring them on a par with National Highways, to give more certainly so they can develop resurfacing programmes and other highways improvements, to help them tackle the scourge of potholes.”
