Budget boost will help end the legacy of poor roads

"Improving our local roads has always been a top priority for me. I am pleased that this extra money will help towards making this a reality." Caroline Dinenage MP

Local MP, Caroline Dinenage, has today welcomed news that the Government has allocated nearly £12 million for Hampshire County Council to improve local highways.

The funding comes from the £420 million budget boost for highways announced in last month's budget.

This additional allocation comes on top of the £950 million allocated nationally this year.

Commenting Caroline said: "This money is a vital step forward to end the legacy of poor roads with potholes growing every quarter during their last term.

Connectivity to the Gosport peninsula is vital for jobs, continued prosperity, and keeps the cost of car maintenance down for local families.

I am pleased the Government will deliver for my constituents"
