Plea for pothole repairs on minor routes in North Lincolnshire
NORTH Lincolnshire is one of several local authorities being urged to make vital repairs to badly damaged roads.
The Country Land and Business Association (CLA) in Lincolnshire is asking local councils not to cut back on repairs to B roads and other minor routes, which have been seriously damaged as a result of the recent freezing temperatures.
With councils across the county facing severe budget cuts, the CLA is sending out a reminder that minor roads provide a vital lifeline for rural businesses and need to be well maintained.
CLA's Lincolnshire spokesman Tim Barnes-Clay said: "Freezing conditions always seem to signal pothole season in the county and while local councils are usually quick to repair damage to major roads like the A15 or A1 they are often more delayed in their approach to minor routes.

"As the ongoing austerity measures continue to bite, we are seriously concerned that cash-starved councils will be tempted to further neglect rural roads in Lincolnshire, which are a key part of the infrastructure that underpins the rural economy.
"In the current economic climate rural businesses cannot afford to be further disadvantaged by having to pay hefty repair bills for vehicles damaged by potholes that should have been dealt with by the local council."
