Following on from the news that windscreen replacement company, Auto Windscreens, has gone into liquidation we hear that our roads are in the worst condition ever, despite an extra £600 million being spent on them last year. The information regarding the condition of our roads comes in a report called the Highways Condition Index (HCI) released by the Department for Transport. The report shows that only 68% of the roads were classified as ‘Good’ whilst 26% were ‘Reasonable’ and 6% were considered poor. The report also showed that local councils increased their spend from £2.6 billion to£3.2 billion but the RAC has criticised the spend suggesting that they couldn’t see that this money had been spent on fixing potholes, I have to agree.
