Nus Ghani welcomes more money to tackle potholes

The Government has today announced an extra £100 million to repair potholes.  East Sussex will receive almost £1.2 million.

Transport Secretary Chris Grayling said this money will help repair almost 2 million potholes as well as help protect the roads from any future severe weather.

This is on top of the £75 million in government 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.

Nus Ghani, MP for Wealden, said:

One of the issues I am most frequently contacted about are potholes in the roads across Wealden.

I have long campaigned for more money to fix Wealden roads, and I am delighted to see the Government commit more than a million pounds to repairing roads in East Sussex and Wealden.

The state of the roads remains a source of significant frustration for families and businesses, and I know that this extra money will go a long way to helping improve the condition of our roads.

The road network is the artery of our economy in Wealden, so it is absolutely vital that they are in the best possible condition.  I am sure many local residents will join me in welcoming the extra funding to achieve that goal.

  1. Repair ???
    No good whatsoever, temporary fix until it all crumbles and comes out again within months, especially in the winter.
    Re lay the affected roads. Making temp repairs will end up costing the public even more money. Typical thoughtless council.
