Bucks County Council will release £3 million from reserves to further fund resurfacing work on Buckinghamshire’s minor roads. This will be in addition to the £25 million already allocated for restoration work on the roads this year.
The £3 million will fund a 12 month programme focussing on badly worn sections of road in around 300 locations. These locations mainly consist of unclassified rural routes.
Leader of the County Council Martin Tett said:
These unclassified roads wouldn’t normally be covered by our resurfacing schemes, but they’re nevertheless important for those who use them. This money should make a significant improvement, particularly in our most rural areas.
Over the next three months Transport for Buckinghamshire will assess the roads, consult with County Councillors and submit a proposed programme for decision. The work is due to start in September 2015.
