Comment from AIA on Transport Select Committee’s report ‘Local roads funding and maintenance: filling the gap’

“With our own ALARM survey highlighting that there is a highway maintenance backlog of more than £9 billion, it’s no surprise that the Transport Select Committee has concluded that the local road network needs investment.

“Local roads are the lifeblood of our economy and communities and we support the Committee’s call for a significant and front-loaded five-year funding settlement for local highway maintenance. We hope the Government will heed this call in its forthcoming Spending Review.”

Rick Green, Chairman of the Asphalt Industry Alliance.
