Malvern Editorial 22nd Jun, 2017   0

A £12MILLION road improvement scheme has seen more than 90 miles of Worcestershire’s roads repaired or resurfaced since it was launched last year.

Worcestershire County Council has said two thirds of scheduled works have been completed since it launched it’s ‘Driving Home’ programme in April 2016.

Council chiefs also claim 20,000 residents have benefitted from the repair works so far.

Coun Alan Amos, Cabinet Member with Responsibility for Highways, said: “Residents in Worcestershire told us about the conditions of their roads, and we have listened.




“We’re investing £12million over a two-year period to improve the roads that matter the most to our residents; those closest to their homes.

“The programme has made a huge difference to almost 20,000 residents across the county so far whose homes have benefitted from the work the Driving Home programme is completing on local roads.


“The overall aim is to improve 150 miles of local roads and, with 93 miles already completed, we are on track to achieve this and the team is doing a fantastic job, all year-round.”
