MP welcome extra funds for pot holes

June 24, 2014

As the number of potholes across Tamworth appears to have multiplied over the recent winter the government has awarded extra money to sort the issue.

Christopher Pincher, Member of Parliament for Tamworth and surrounding villages, welcomed the news of additional funding for Staffordshire County Council to tackle pot holes across the county and Tamworth.

In total £6.7million of additional funding for Staffordshire Highways Authority has been announced for this year on top of the annual roads maintenance budget.

Commenting Mr Pincher said:  “I hear from many residents across the town and rural communities that they are not happy with the state of the roads and I trust that this new funding will go a long way to dealing with the maintenance of potholes and poor road surfaces.”

“Investing in our roads and infrastructure is a key part of our long-term economic plan as we continue to support business and ensuring that Tamworth becomes the place to do business.”
