Fiona welcomes Government Consultation on Road Works

Fiona welcomes the Government Proposals that utility companies will have to pay to rent lanes from Local Councils.

Fiona said:

"Journey delays due to roadworks have blighted this area for far too long. I welcome the Government Proposal to allow local authorities to charge utility companies by the hour to carry out works on selected routes, encouraging them to avoid busy roads and peak times, and incentivising them to join together when they do need to dig up congested routes and I encourage constituents to contribute to this consultation so we can see a reduction to this great inconvenience and journey times."

Constituents can respond online to the Consultation on the following page:…
