Residents Welcome £20 million Investment for Roads and Footpaths in York

More than £20 million will be spent on roads, paths and cycleways as well as a new initiative funded by the government to make use of pioneering pothole detecting cameras to help identify and repair problems more quickly. Money will fund long term improvements as well as short-term repairs, along with money for gully-cleaning, neglected during the previous Labour administration and now crying out for investment.

Micklegate Resident Paul Healey said "It's great to see the Conservative led Council investing in our roads and footpaths. Residents rightly expect their council to be proactive on maintenance and with the new equipment I am confident the Council will improve on repairs and upgrades where they are needed most.”
