Torbay's Mayor Gordon Oliver has written to the Government appealing for more cash to tackle the council's growing road maintenance backlog.
"I have emphasised that apart from the massive financial implications of losing any part of our highways asset and the consequent economic catastrophe for the community, the public could be left at real risk of injury and the council left with spiralling compensation claims. Despite our own budget pressures, we are doing our best to maintain our roads, but we really do need more Government financial support."
