Welsh council engineering directors have formed an association to demand more money for road maintenance, reports The Western Mail (p6).
They have formed the Welsh Association of Technical Officers, which will work with the Welsh Local Government Association to demand more funds for road salting and gritting, and other work.
The directors claim that some local authorities have to spend up to an additional£500,000 on top of what they receive from the Welsh Office for salting and gritting roads.
They say the Welsh Office does not take into account the geographical location and hence the weather conditions experienced by some authorities.
