Brighton and Hove Conservatives welcome the Government’s £1.163m cash injection into the City to repair and maintain roads and streets. This is in addition to the £0.189m previously given to the Council for pot hole repairs.
Conservative spokes for transport, Cllr. Lee Wares said “The combined sum of £1.352m allocated by Government to Brighton and Hove this year is significant, we would hope the Labour Administration will now use the money wisely and not waste it”.
We Don't Want Waste
“What we don’t want to see is waste such as the Labour Administration buying road salt needed to keep our roads clear this winter to only store it outside for it to dissolve in the rain before it can be used”.
Labour Have No More Excuses
“With the Government’s £1.352m plus the £2.3m windfall surplus the Council banked from parking charges and fines; a total of £3.582m can be spent this financial year fixing potholes, roads and pavements, Labour have no more excuses.”
