Banbury Councillor wants to pressure government to improve roads.

Labour Councillor Mark Cherry is saying ‘enough is enough’ when it comes to patch repairing the roads in his Ruscote ward, and is proposing a motion to the next full County Council meeting in September to pressure central government to properly fund a road refurbishment programme.

Mark Cherry says:

“So much of my time as a councillor is spent reporting pot holes, and waiting for them to be repaired, when the reality is that everyone’s hands are tied; mine, the County Council technical teams, and the County Council itself, because of government budget cuts.

“At the moment I have requests out for patch repairs and ‘micro asphalt surfacing’ to Caernarvon Way, Woodgreen Avenue, Orchard Way, Drayton Road, Trinity Close and Cromwell Road. Some of this work will be done later this year but other roads will have to wait their turn in the Council’s 2018 repair programme.

“One estimate I’ve seen says that fixing potholes in Oxfordshire could cost £165 million and £20 million a year to maintain, but the highways budget is only £20 million a year to start with, which means we are barely managing, in fact we’re actually managing a rapid decline in the quality of our roads.

“My motion to full council on 12 September mandates the council leader to demand extra funding from central government, and I am hoping for cross-party support.”
