Alex's campaign to improve the conditions of Cheltenham's roads has received a boost after Gloucestershire was granted a further £87.9m in Government cash to fix potholes.
The funding, which will be invested over the coming years, will see £2.8m invested in Gloucestershire's roads in 2023-24 and 2024-25 and marks a significant acceleration of road resurfacing throughout the country after the Prime Minister announced billions of pounds of extra investment to fix potholes as part of his plan to redirect spiralling HS2 costs.
"Potholes are a particular bugbear of mine and fixing Cheltenham’s roads remains a key local priority for me.
"Whilst we are making significant progress locally with resurfacing work to the Prom, St James’ Square, Leckhampton Road, Montpellier Spa Road, Cleeveland Road and so on, we know that more needs to be done.
"That's why I will be fighting to ensure that Cheltenham gets its fair share of the Government's new multi-billion pound pothole fund.
"With this extra cash, we can solve this issue once and for all."
