Potholes to recieve Government funding
Pot Holes to be tackled at last?
As a keen blogger and the owner of a tyre business and garage, I am always interested in the things that affect my work and over the years one of the big things that have concerned me has been the dreaded “pot holes”.
It is perhaps one of the things that the north-south divide has plagued us with. I mean it seems that the north has many more potholes than the south. Even going as far back as the Beetles, the now famous lines of, “four thousand holes in Blackburn Lancashire”, comes to mind.
However, I can't help thinking that although a negative thing, this is always good for business and these holes have disabled many a thousand tyres and broken just as many car suspensions and springs.
However, it appears that the problem has come home to our MP’s in London and it has been announced that £6 billion is to be allocated to local councils to tackle the problem and try to improve our roads. The money is to be released between 2015 and 2021. This will be additional funding and should help them carry out the work without affecting the taxpayers.
