Improving Southend’s roads and pavements

Southend-on-Sea Borough Council will be investing over £26m into improving its roads and pavements over the next 3 years. This includes an extra £3m proposed as part of the council’s draft 2019/20 budget, and the investment will see a number of roads resurfaced, potholes filled and pavements replaced throughout the 2019/20 financial year.

Cllr Andrew Moring, cabinet member for infrastructure, said: “With the borough growing, it is essential that we continue to look after the infrastructure we have so that it can support the borough’s future development. Improving the road network as part of a wider transport and access strategy will help traffic to flow and support the council’s aspirations for Southend as a place to live, work and prosper within south Essex.”
