More Cash To Fix Cornish Potholes
11:56am 20th June 2014
Almost four and a half million pounds is handed to Cornwall to help fix potholes.
Ministers reckon the cash will repair around 81 thousand across the Duchy.
Councils had to bid for a share of the government funding which comes in the wake of the winter storms.
Roads minister Robert Goodwill said: "We all know as we drive round that potholes keep appearing and this isn't a sort of problem you can fix once and for all. If you have a very frosty winter then the frost heave creates these potholes and if you have a wet winter of course you get ground water bubbling up; you've got to keep ahead of the game."
The AA is welcoming the money but the motoring group is worried it will not go far enough.
Spokesman Ian Crowder said: "Any funding is a good thing in helping to get Britain's crumbling roads put right but it is probably nowhere near enough to meet the real cost of putting Britain's roads back into order."11:56am 20th June 2014
