Road - Budget 2014

Fuel tax has been frozen again - so no increase there, except if the oil producers and speculators start jacking up the prices, either because exploring, drilling and refining costs are going up, or simply because the speculators need more champagne and caviar to fuel their lifestyles!  

The Chancellor has also promised Councils up to £200m to repair potholes, provided they apply for it in time and on the right forms. Mind you, the Institute of Advanced Motorists say there is a £10 Billion backlog in road repairs! That’s quite a discrepancy.
