Wealden MP Nus Ghani has welcomed news that roads across Wealden will benefit from an additional £420 million that has been made available to repair potholes in the UK’s roads.
At the Budget this week, following lobbying from Nus, the Chancellor of the Exchequer announced extra investment in the pothole fund, which is on top of the existing fund of £300 million announced earlier in the year.
The Chancellor also announced another freeze of fuel duty for the ninth consecutive year, saving the average car driver £1,000 since 2010.
Nus Ghani, MP for Wealden, said: “Potholes are one of the biggest issues filling my postbag, and it’s great news that more money is being made available to repair potholes across East Sussex.
“Potholes can cause untold damage to all road users, so it’s vital that we keep on top of repairing them, especially over the next few months as we head into winter.
“Alongside a record ninth consecutive year of frozen fuel duty, this funding shows that we are on the side of motorists across Wealden.”
