Over the course of the next week or so I am going to take a look at what the Labour administration is doing about fixing up our dilapidated roads. It has allocated Â£12 million over the last three years to spend on Ealingâ€™s roads (the year before, 2010/11, the budget was set by the outgoing Conservative administration).
I will take a look at the big picture but first I thought that it would be useful to go through some of the wards that have come off worst.
The absolute worst is Ealing Common. As one of 23 wards it might expect on average to get Â£522K out of the Â£12 million. It has had absolutely nothing. No road or pavement in Ealing Common ward has been resurfaced in Ealing Common ward for 3 years.
