Caerphilly set for £1.6m road resurfacing

CAERPHILLY council has agreed increased funding for priority resurfacing works.

The authority says “prudent financial management” of funding received from the Welsh Government’s Local Government Borrowing Initiative over the last two years has resulted in an increase in this year’s allocation. The council’s highways department will benefit from an extra £1.6 million for carriageway resurfacing and £771,586 for footways.

The savings will also fund work to upgrade 525 street lamps with modern LED lanterns incorporating a central management system. Any further underspend will be spent on prioritised carriageways and footways.

Members of the council’s cabinet rubber-stamped the allocation of funding during their meeting on Wednesday.

Councillor Tom Williams, cabinet member for highways, transportation and engineering, said: “It is pleasing we are able to propose further improvements to our carriageways.”

1.6 million? you could have 160 million and still be way short of what's required.
