AIA comments on Chancellor’s Autumn Statement (November 23)

Alan Mackenzie, Chairman of the Asphalt Industry Alliance (AIA), comments on the Chancellor’s Autumn Statement today (Wednesday November 23):
“We are reassured that the Chancellor has recognised the importance of investment in road infrastructure to stimulate productivity and growth.
“The devil is, of course, in the detail. Long term underfunding means that the local road network continues to deteriorate at a faster rate than it can be repaired. We hope the decline in maintenance funding experienced by local highways teams will be addressed by real and measurable increases.”
