Closed petition Increase funding for the repair and resurfacing of roads
The Government takes billions a year from road users. We deserve better investment in road maintenance, not simply waiting for potholes to appear then filling them.
Many roads need resurfacing to provide better, safer conditions for all road users. The Government should increase funding for this.
Road surfaces in many areas are a disgrace and not becoming of a supposedly developed leading world economy.
Potholes are an obvious danger to all road users but our roads need much more than the sticking plaster of pothole repair, much of which takes an age to be undertaken.
Nor is it simply about safety; there is a total lack of civic pride. Improving roads could help improve wellbeing by reducing stress. Invest more of the billions of pounds of revenue taken from road users into road infrastructure.
