IAM RoadSmart responds to DfT's announcement on local roads benefitting from pothole funding

Responding to the DfT's announcement, IAM RoadSmart Director of Policy and Standards Nicholas Lyes said: “While it is welcome the funding is finding its way through, crumbling road surfaces continue to be an expensive nuisance for drivers and a road safety hazard, particularly for those on two wheels. The onus is both on remaining councils to prioritise their reporting and on the Government to find a way of front loading some of the money that has been reallocated from HS2. The last thing we want is to be heading into another winter where motorists are swerving to avoid the thud of an unfixed pothole.”
