CUTTING the budget for road maintenance by £1m. over the last four years has led to dangerous, potholed roads, Deputy Tony Spruce, pictured, has said.
A caller to the BBC phone-in raised the issue.
‘With the amount of money that we’ve been paying out for our petrol, surely we can have better roads than we’ve got,’ he said.
‘We used to have good roads.’
He said the Tarmac being used was not strong enough to cope with the recent difficult weather conditions.
