This petition was submitted during the 2015–2017 Conservative government
Petition Government to invest 2p per litre of fuel duty to fix potholes on local roads.
Decades of under investment in local road maintenance has resulted in a maintenance bill of £12 billion yet the problem is getting worse as highway authorities reduce their maintenance spend each year. Investing 2p per litre of fuel duty would make an extra £1Bn available each year to resolve this.
