Problematic potholes earmarked for repair

By Katia Harston, Chief Reporter Tuesday 8th April 2014

BARNSLEY'S worst roads will be repaired after Barnsley Council was awarded £606,045 to tackle its problematic potholes.

Councils across the country will receive their share of £183.5 million which the government has made available to help repair local roads damaged by severe winter conditions.

The money, which will be added to the council's existing road maintenance budget, has been welcomed by Coun Roy Miller, the cabinet spokesman for development, environment and culture.

He said: "Part of the money will be used to resurface the worst condition roads on our network on a prioritised basis, and part used to carry out cheaper preventative treatments on roads in reasonable condition."

Where has this allocated money been spent?? The main Sheffield road at Hoyland Common is disgraceful and in urgent need of re-surfacing. Our own "Springfield Crescent" and surrounding area was assigned a much needed needed drainage programme to commence last November. These works are now due to commence June 21st 2015. I won't hold my breath.
