Motion: Roads Maintenance Budget Deficit


That this Assembly is concerned that the road structural maintenance budget deficit is currently estimated to be £1 billion; notes the importance of road maintenance in terms of road safety, especially in rural areas; further notes that it is estimated that over £137m per annum is needed to adequately maintain, in its current state, the structural integrity of Northern Ireland’s road network; and calls on the Minister for Infrastructure to include a ring-fenced allocation to his Department’s baseline budget for road maintenance repair that will facilitate a more strategic and, consequently, efficient approach to road maintenance.
