Transport Cuts 1997

County Council press release: Cuts Confirmed for Transport (Jan-1997).

Minor road & footpath maintenance were to be cut by 611,000, with lesser reductions for other areas such as traffic management schemes. In all 1.54M was cut from the budget.

However the Conservatives' victory in the County Council elections may mean that resources will be switched to maintain the maintenance budget.
(CEN 20-Jan, 8-May).
