The people of the Leigh constituency deserve safer and better quality roads and pavements. Given this, I am working for constituents to raise their concerns with Wigan Council on pot holes, broken pavements and neglected footpaths across the constituency. Fixing roads in our communities does not only mean resurfacing pot holes as residents report them, but also addressing dilapidated walkways, looking to secure long-lasting local Government investment.
Since becoming MP for Leigh, James has received a large number of constituents contacting him on the poor conditions of roads in their locality, raising these reports on a case-by-case basis with Wigan Council and monitoring the progress of each enquiry until they have been fixed. Alongside this, James' Pothole Survey and Local Path Improvement Survey were launched to give constituents the opportunity to identify key areas that suffered from littering, potholes and general untidiness. Not only do these surveys allow residents to identify areas that need improvement, but also offer suggestions on how roads and pavements in their area could be improved.
