      Les Clark, sadly there are lots of roads in Aberdeen that are in poor condition. That is the result of years of underinvestment in maintaining them.

      When my colleagues and I took control of the Council in May 2022, we made a commitment to invest more each year in resurfacing and properly repairing Aberdeen’s roads and pavements. So far we have added £7 million to the roads and pavements resurfacing and repairs budget. We were told that was the maximum amount of extra work with which the North East’s roads contractors and quarries could cope.

      We will continue to invest more every year until Aberdeen’s roads and pavements are once more of an acceptable standard. That though will take a number of years.
