Years of Labour neglect followed by two harsh winters has left the nation’s roads in a sorry state. Peppered with potholes they are causing £2.8 billion a year in damage to cars, and local councils pay out £50 million in compensation to angry motorists.
To tackle this problem the Government has announced £100 million funding for pothole repairs. The AA welcomed the announcement, estimating that it will repair one-and-a-half million potholes.
This money will make a real difference In Great Yarmouth and the rest of Norfolk to the huge number of drivers and cyclists who are fed up with having to continually battle against dangerous potholes, giving them safer and smoother journeys.
