Bucks council has announced they will invest £100 million into major highways improvements spanning the next four years.

Roads in the county "suffer more than most" according to the council due to the direct links from Buckinghamshire to London, Oxford and Milton Keynes.

Four million of this investment will be spent on clearing the 85,000 gullies across Bucks and repairing them to reduce the potential for road flooding.

A further three million is set to be spent on making improvements to road surfaces in the county.

Cabinet Member for Transport, Steven Broadbent, said: “I am delighted that such a significant and much needed investment is being made into our highways.

"I know that many residents have concerns about their local roads and I am sure that this news will be celebrated by many.

"I’m also impressed with the bold new signage, which is vital when it comes to keeping residents informed about the improvements happening in their area.

"I must urge that as work continues to improve our highways, residents continue to play their part by reporting defects on Fix My Street, where they can be picked up by our highways team.”

The council is responsible for the maintenance of 3,200 km of carriageway and 2,400 km of footways and has said they will keep residents well informed about the roadworks in their area.

Brand new signage will be placed in the affected area indicating when works as part of the ‘Investing in your roads’ programme are taking place.
