The State of UK roads

Recommended Posts

It's a well recognised fact that the state of roads in the UK is appalling. Do people think this is due to councils not carrying out their job properly, or are they simply not being given enough funding to make the improvements that are needed?

It's more a lack of perspective. The vast majority of roads are far from appalling.

If only the council had commissioned a private company to resurface all of Sheffield's roads.

Interesting thought. Has this been implemented anywhere else?

Just hoping to get people talking. Will refrain from any new ones for a bit now!

IIRC Labour slashed funding for road repairs and improvements a good decade ago and it's been desperately low ever since.

An increase in cycling interest in the run up to the worlds largest cycling race coming to town.

 

What a huge surprise.

There is a massive mount of money being spent on our roads trouble is it's not for your benefit.

 

Look at all the road works anywhere and in most cases that part of the road will never be the same again. Designed bottlenecks are being put everywhere off motorways and on.

Managed motorways they call them but why?

Pay per mile is almost on us but first enough conjestion has to be caused.

Funny everything they say is to protect you will be used to bleed you dry.

The Anpr system will read your plate and send you the bill. For our own good of course.
