Potholes Worst Ever
Liberal Democrats Demand our Roads get Fixed Properly
POTHOLED ROADS ARE A DANGEROUS DISGRACE
At this time of year roads always have potholes caused by winter weather.
However, the Tory Government’s savage cuts to local spending has resulted in much less spent on road repairs. Kirklees Labour has not helped by failing to invest in road repairs. Funding has fallen to an all-time low. Liberal Democrat councillors demanded that an extra £1m be spent on roads but this plan was refused by Labour. The result is that our roads don’t get repaired properly.
