hi

i just came across this



The Department for Transport (DfT) has pledged to invest around £1 billion a year from next year to improve safety on local A-roads.

A DfT spokesman said: “The UK has some of the safest roads in the world. The safety of all road users is our priority, which is why we have invested £100 million in the 50 most dangerous A-roads.”




how have they the funds to pay £1 billion a year on top of the (non-repairs) of existing roads

I don't care where they get it from, our roads are in a terrible condition, but I won't be holding my breath until I see a widespread road rebuilding program.
