Not enough money to repair Cumbria’s roads

County council officials say frost damage has wreaked havoc with the roads network, which is in a “bleak” condition littered with potholes.

And they admit there is nowhere near enough money to carry out all the required repairs. The council is concentrating its limited budget on busy main roads.

There will be little, if any, maintenance of minor country roads and estate roads in towns.

My comment: No wonder they have no money left to repair pot holes when last year they paid their now ex CEO a total remuneration of £464,113 (Salary of £97,509 with bonuses of £15,435 and a contribution of £351,169 to his pension pot).
