Many roads across Wales are not fit for purpose a response to Labour Government freeze on all new road building projects

Commenting on the Labour Government’s decision to freeze all new road building projects, Welsh Conservative Shadow Transport Minister, Natasha Asghar MS said: 
"At such a delicate economic time, this decision could prove a significant blow for our recovery.  Many roads across Wales are not fit for purpose and have had a damaging impact on our economic fortunes, environment and public safety. Regular traffic jams deter investment and have contributed to Wales having some of the worst air quality in the UK.Ministers seem hell-bent on letting our roads deteriorate and forcing everyone onto public transport, despite major doubts over the ability of the network in Wales to cope after years of poor management and under-investment by Labour.
Welsh workers and businesses urgently require more information about the scope of the review and the Welsh Labour Government’s long-term intentions for our transport infrastructure.”http://www.aberdareonline.co.uk/node/2178
