Finstock News - Our MP Reports

"Many of you have contacted me about the condition of roads in West Oxfordshire, and I am very aware of the damage that has been done to our roads during these past winter months – especially along the B4022, in particular.  I have listened to your concerns and I have campaigned for more funding to fix potholes right across the constituency.  I therefore welcome the Government’s recent announcement that local roads badly affected by winter weather will benefit from a further £100 million to help repair any potholes and other storm damage.  This means £1.8m will be available for Oxfordshire to repair potholes; when coupled with other funding announcements, this means we will have nearly £3m to fix our roads. 

"The Highways Team at Oxfordshire County Council (OCC) are working hard to address these issues, using this funding to patch the areas that need it most, and I welcome the good work they have done so far.  Nevertheless, I know there is more to do, and I continue to push for more funding – but this is certainly a large step in the right direction.

"As ever, if there is anything you wish to raise with me, please do not hesitate to contact me at robert@robertcourts.co.uk."
