LGA Responds to budget roads fund announcement

Cllr Peter Box responds to the Chancellor's Budget announcement of a Roads Fund paid for by car tax

"Whilst extra funding for roads is necessary, it is disappointing that this appears to be restricted to motorways. We are facing a 42 per cent increase in traffic on local roads by 2040 and there is a £12 billion backlog of roads repairs.

"Since no car journey begins or ends on a motorway, we would urge that this fund, which will be paid for by motorists out of their car tax, be applicable to all types of roads on a needs basis."
