Caerphilly Council to consider spending extra £2million on road and pavement repairs

Published in News at 10:51, Monday September 5th, 2011.


Councillors are to meet on Tuesday to approve £2 million of funding to repair Caerphilly County Borough’s roads and pavements.

Members of the council cabinet will consider whether or not to spend the money from the council’s general reserves.

In a report to be considered by councillors, the reason given for the extra road repairs is the severe back-to-back winters.

The report says: “Council will be aware of the recent back-to-back severe winters experienced throughout the UK and within the borough. Whilst the Council effectively dealt with these difficult situations, the legacy of such weather conditions means that in areas of ageing highway infrastructure, potholes are more likely to form and this proved to be the case.”

The money is in addition to that already spent on improving the roads.

If approved, first by the cabinet and then full council, the money will be spent on the pavements and roads of the following areas:
