At the council’s budget-setting meeting last Tuesday, the Conservative, Labour and Independent councillors who control the city council slashed over half a million pounds from road and pavement repairs and maintenance budgets.
In contrast, the budget I proposed on behalf of the Liberal Democrats would not have made any cuts to road and pavement repair and maintenance budgets. In addition, I proposed adding an additional £1 million to the capital budget for road and pavement resurfacing.
Aberdeen’s roads and pavements are crumbling. For Conservative and Labour councillors to decide to cut over half a million pounds from the road and pavement repair and maintenance budgets is shameful.
