On Wednesday 27 April  the Council along with Ringway held the first of a series of roadshow events in order to speak to people face to face about what is happening in their area and to answer any concerns or queries. Network Rail and Thames Valley Police also attended the event.

During the last few weeks there have been three incidents where staff have almost been seriously injured whilst working on site next to roads due to careless drivers. A newly installed light column was also damaged and had to be repaired.


Both MK Council and Ringway take site safety very seriously and all staff on site are clearly visible to drivers in high vis reflective clothing.

The Council will receive £168,000 from the government from the £50m Pothole Action Fund it was announced in April.


A number of local authorities were awarded different amount of funding from the goverment based on the size of their road network.


Councils in the South East will receive around £8.3m collectively to repair potholes on their road networks over the next 12 months.

From 22 April 2016, the government has given local councils new powers to remove road signs in order to reduce the number of 'pointless or out of date' signs that are a distraction to drivers but serve no real purpose. It will also ensure that the useful signs are then clearer to see.


It should also mean savings for the council too as there is a cost for lighting these unnecessary signs.
