Labour’s “24 to 24” roads investment delivers

Cllr Chris Read on Larch Avenue, which is expected to be resurfaced this week

Back in February we announced major further investment in road resurfacing across the borough as one of our key commitments in the council’s budget, and over the last few weeks we’ve begun to see the benefits locally.

Cedar Avenue has been one of the first roads to be resurfaced as part of the new scheme.

Labour councillors have committed an additional £24 million of council funding to improve the condition of Rotherham’s roads up until 2024 – hence the name “24 to 24”.

Our previous investment programme saw the number of potholes reported in roads across the borough reduced by a third. Our intention is that this further four year programme will see that number cut by half again. It’s the biggest sustained investment in the state of our roads for decades.

Over the last few weeks, a number of local roads that have been in need of repair have benfitted as a result; Cedar Avenue, Rowan Drive, Myrtle Crescent and Rose Drive. Larch Avenue and Spruce Close are expected to be resurfaced before Christmas.

Please do bear with the crews whilst the works are on-going, we do understand that they can be inconvenient if you live nearby, but hopefully a little temporary disruption will be worthwhile both to motorists and in improving the appearance of our local area.
