More investment needed in highways repairs

April 30, 2012 1:09 AM

We need more investment in pavement and road repairs. RCT Council have just announced a £5million highways spend.

Cilfynydd fares particularly badly from this. Cilfynydd Road will benefit from - to use the words in the report - an 'ultra thin overlay.' James Hackett says this is not good enough and that Cilfynydd is getting a raw deal again.

"This is an extremely busy road and the surface is terrible. Maybe the current Labour Councillor should have been fighting a bit harder for this area.

"The Council are spending a mere £15K on it, There have already been complaints in the ward about the quality of road repairs - this patch job is not going to be any better and will not last."

Meanwhile in Tonteg residents will benefit from just £53,420 of the total.

The full list is below. To put it into context, the residents of Tonteg Close alone can expect to pay £59,796.61 in Council tax this year. Those in Conway Crescent £50,006.24 and in The Rise £61,152.06. There is no investment there.
