Julian Welcomes £1million for York Potholes

November 13, 2018

Following the Chancellor’s Budget Announcement that £420 million would be allocated for local highways maintenance, Julian was pleased with confirmation that £1 million will be distributed to City of York Council. The overall figure represents the biggest ever single cash injection to improve England’s roads.

The funding boost will help local authorities repair potholes, keep local bridges and structures open and safe, and can be used for other minor highways works that may be needed.

Speaking after the announcement, Julian said:

Potholes are a real concern for my constituents, particularly in residential areas. I recently hosted a meeting for all parish councils in York Outer and needless to say, discussions about potholes featured significantly. City of York Council have a rolling improvement works programme but these extra funds will expand the scope of what can be done.

All constituents, whether motorists or cyclists, should contact me directly if they have particular concerns about a pothole or damage to the highway and I shall be more than happy to raise this with the council on their behalf.

In a letter to Members of Parliament Jesse Norman, the Transport Minister added:

This new funding represents a significant boost in road maintenance and is on top of £950 million we are already providing to councils across the country this years for local highways maintenance.
