Council nets £4.5 million to improve roads

Dudley Council has received almost £4.5 million in government funding to improve borough roads.

It means council bosses will spend £10 million in total this year on highways, with the latest works this week seeing improvements to Stourbridge Ring Road.

The £4.49m for highways maintenance has come via West Midlands Combined Authorit) through the City Region Sustainable Transport Settlements scheme.

Council bosses are proposing to spend more than half of the cash - £2.6 million – on improvements to major A and B roads in the borough. A further £1.1 million is to be spent on unclassified roads, with more than £400,000 on lighting and £330,000 on bridges. Councillor Steve Clark, cabinet member for finance and legal services, said:

"This investment from the government, through West Midlands Combined Authority, is hugely welcomed. We know from residents how important it is that we maintain our roads in good condition.

"That is why we are pledging to make it a priority by spending £10 million this year to resurface roads and tackle potholes."
