Fighting for Better Road Surfaces

The campaign I worked on with Northampton residents since the last election to win extra funding for Northampton to fix potholes and improve our road surfaces has paid off; the campaign succeeded when at last year’s Budget our town received an extra £3.32 Million of funds specifically to renew local road surfaces. Many roads have now been totally resurfaced, but much more needs to be done and I want many more of our roads to have the same treatment.

A further £79 million is now coming to our area to use over the next six years to undertake more road repairs – further welcome news for local drivers and cyclists, thanks to Conservatives in Government.

I am continuing to press for even more funding for residential streets across our town to be re-surfaced & repaired, and my campaign continues!
