Too little investment is made in the highway maintenance of redditch roads. Potholes are a constant reoccurrence on all roads, flooding due to inadequate drainage is often seen. The local authority has opted out of adopting new build estate roads across all of redditch, leaving their constituents open to uncapped ground management fees. Too little is done from the council to adopt the grounds and roads, the additional 7% council tax allocation for highways maintenance from the thousands of new residents is not used on the immediate roads for the residents, nor to update the existing infrastructure. A prime example being the new Amazon warehouse. Exponential increase of road usage with lack of appropriate highway investment and ownership will lead to not only further frustration of residency, and logistical pains, but also increased useage of the already depleted emergency services. Growth of the town with lack of basic investment and maintenance will be our downfall.
