Mark Menzies MP has said there are 102,440 potholes across Lancashire, commenting, ‘People in Fylde should be able to get to work and to see friends and family without fear of damaging their vehicles due to poor quality roads.’ He has therefore welcomed £5,122,000 to improve road standards for drivers, saving them money on repairs, and making it easier to get to work and see family.
MP Menzies said: ‘People in Fylde should be able to get to work and to see friends and family without fear of damaging their vehicles due to poor quality roads. That is why I am delighted the Conservative Government is investing £5,122,000 across Lancashire to fix 102,440 potholes. This funding will not only improve the quality of people’s journey but will also make our roads safer for everyone who uses them.”
In addition to repairs and maintenance, Lancashire County Council is set to resurface the following roads in 2023:
- Cartmell Lane, Lytham – reconstruction of a 210m stretch at the bend near Primrose Hill Farm
- Clifton Gardens, Lytham – resurfacing full length
- East Cliffe and Victoria Street, Lytham – resurfacing full lengths of both
- Grange Road, St. Anne’s – surface dressing from Oxford Road to St. David’s Road North
- Grasmere Road and surrounding roads, St. Anne’s – surface dressing of Highbury Road East from Leech Lane to Grasmere Road; and the full lengths of Grasmere Road, Marlborough Road and Chatham Avenue
- Kirkham/Wesham bypass (A585) – surface dressing between Blackpool Road and Fleetwood Road (B5192)
- Moss Side Lane, Stalmine – reconstruction between pumphouse and Union Lane
- Salwick Place and Weeton Avenue, St. Anne’s North resurfacing full lengths of both
- Westby Street, Lytham – surface dressing from Ballam Road to Park View Road
And mostly due to the Council having no money to fix our disintegrating infrastructure thanks to Conservative Government induced austerity.
Yet somehow our self-serving government keeps finding billions to fund it’s vanity projects and give themselves bigger pay rises than the rest of the working population.
The biggest hole to fix is the gaping hole in the politics of our once great country.
Sadly this particular hole gets bigger every day and we’re all in danger of being swallowed up by it.
Fill that one up, if you can…
