I welcome the government's announcement of £3 billion of investment on improving roads in a boost for motorists across the UK and in North East Hampshire.
The Transport Secretary has outlined details of road improvements announced as part of the Autumn Statement, including:
£925 million to tackle congestion and provide upgrades on local roads;
£175 million to improve the 50 most dangerous roads in the country; and
£220 million for Highways England to combat congestion.
In addition, HM Treasury is allocating over £11.6 million to the South East to fix around 220,000 potholes in 2017/18 or stop them forming in the first place, including £2,123,000 to fix 40,000 potholes across Hampshire.
