Fiona welcomes new funding for road repairs in Cheshire East

Fiona has welcomed the allocation of a further £420 million of new money for local highways maintenance in the recent Budget.

This includes £4.6 million for Cheshire East.

Fiona said:

"It was a tough, long and particularly wet winter which exacerbated road surface challenges, which is why I am very pleased that the Government announced in the Budget the biggest ever single cash injection for road maintenance in England. £420 million of new money was allocated for local highways maintenance, including £4.6 million for Cheshire East, which will help repair potholes and improve road surfaces across this area, something I know is a high priority for residents."

This new funding represents a significant boost in road maintenance, on top of the £950 million which had already been provided by central Government to councils across the country this year for local highways maintenance.
