Roads Capital Programme Approved For Sutherland 2024/25
25th January 2024
Members of the Sutherland Committee agreed a list of proposed prioritised roadworks which will be funded out of the Capital Budget allocation for 2024/25.
The local allocations capital budget for 2024/25 remains to be established which will be calculated from the approved capital budget allocation.
The estimated area capital roads programme is currently based on previous years' baseline £7.2m Highland Area Roads capital budget allocation. Therefore, the estimated local allocation for the Sutherland area is £775,000. Should the approved 2024/25 budget differ from previous budgets then the programme will be adjusted appropriately.
Cllr Richard Gale, Chair of the Sutherland Area Committee said: "There are a number of roads requiring maintenance throughout the area, and while we are not in a position to discuss the area’s road budget at this time, we were pleased to be able to review the list of suggested prioritised works.
“I would also like to express my thanks to the work of our roads operations teams who have been out in the recent bad weather to clear the snow, ice, and debris from our roads to make them safer for others."
