Cash boost to repair potholes

By James Grayson

Local councillors are celebrating as pothole-ridden roads in Rawdon and Horsforth will be receiving  makeovers totalling almost a quarter of a million pounds.

£100,000 will go towards repairs on Layton Avenue in Rawdon as part of the annual Leeds City Council Highways Capital Maintenance Programme.

Brownberrie Crescent will have £50,000 spent on it and the rest of the £239,000 will go towards repairing Victoria Walk, Springfield Walk and Springfield Rise in Horsforth. 

Coun Brian Cleasby (Lib Dems, Horsforth) said: “It is reassuring because when the Labour group took control of the Council again, we thought there would be budget cuts in our part of Leeds. 

“It is good news because roads like Layton Avenue have suffered badly over the last few years.”
