DRIVERS will be relieved to know Hounslow will be receiving a healthy lump of cash to repair roads.
The borough has been allocated £321,467 out of the £100m handed over to the Local Highways Authorities last week, to repair pot holes and other road damage. This is in addition to the £100m already announced earlier this year.
MP Mary Macleod said: “The maintenance of roads is an issue that residents feel strongly about and I look forward to Hounslow Council using these funds to make a real difference to our local roads.”
To promote greater transparency, all local highway authorities have agreed to publish information on their websites by September 30 to show how this additional money has been spent.
