Roads budget - your call

Every year, on top of the city wide allocation of the roads capital budget, around £100k is allocated to the South Central Neighbourhood Partnership for allocation of roads work. The councillors along with a number of local representatives (eg community council members) suggest projects which need undertaken which would otherwise be unlikely to be completed, and prioritise them, in the current case, from April 2010 to March 2011.

So suggestions will be welcomed for me to submit to the process. The should be in the 2 wards making up the NP (map here - the allocation is for two wards - Southside & Newington and Meadows/Morningside). Last year projects included road surface repairs, providing dropped kerbs for wheelchairs, renewing steps. Suggestions will be costed before consideration for inclusion and prioritisation. £100k is probably enough for around 10 such capital projects

Contact me with your local suggestions.
