Council Gets More Money For Pot Holes

Mount Flagon Road

Mount Flagon Road

The islands’ Council has been awarded a government grant to tackle potholes.

They’ve been given £17,451. That’s in addition to the £81,000 offered to tackle damage in the aftermath of the winter storms.

The Department for Transport say that as a condition of receiving the money, the Council is required to publish monthly progress updates on how many potholes have been repaired.

The Council’s £1.5m resurfacing of St Mary’s roads is underway but not all roads are being improved.

The lane to Mount Flagon, which has a significant number of potholes, won’t be resurfaced. It’s considered to be a low priority because it’s used less than other roads

The government says the grant can be put into any roadwork projects.
