Essex County Standard: MP slams roads ‘hold-up’ MP slams roads ‘hold-up’

COLCHESTER’S MP accused Essex County Council of delaying an announcement of road improvements for two weeks – just in time for the local elections.

County Hall revealed on Wednesday more than £485,000 will be spent on Colchester roads.

The schemes were signed off by Rodney Bass, councillor responsible for highways, on April 15.

Lib Dem Sir Bob Russell said: “I find it cynical the announcement has been delayed until the election period. I wish they wouldn’t treat people as if they were mugs.

“I’m confident the people of Colchester will see through this Tory ploy.”

See today's Gazette for the full story and a list of the road improvements.

I don't always agree with Bob, but on this issue, it's hard not to. A very cynical move by Essex County Highways.
