Councillor Bernie Attridge, Cabinet Member for Environment said:
”The schemes have been chosen following assessments of all areas of concern on the Council’s Highway Network. The assessments have followed processes previously agreed by the administration to ensure openness and transparency and to ensure that the schemes most in need of attention are put forward. It once again highlights the importance of an effective and safe highway network to this Council and I eagerly await the outcome of the bids to Welsh Government for all of the schemes we have put forward”
