Published on: 24 Feb 2017
NEARLY 7,000 potholes in South Gloucestershire will be filled in over the next 12 months.
The Government has allocated £362,000 for local roads from its Pothole Action Fund.
Money is also coming our way from the new National Productivity Investment Fund to improve roads in the district aimed at cutting congestion and improving journey times.
Kingswood MP Chris Skidmore welcomed the funding, which he said would benefit local families and businesses.
‘The state of our roads is consistently being raised with me on the doorstep by local residents, so I know how popular this government funding will be,” he said.
