More bad news has been announced for Scotland’s infrastructure as road spending has been cut by 20 per cent in the past seven years.

Cosla’s recent local government bench-marking framework report stated that road maintenance funding had decreased from £691 million in 2010/11 to £554 million last year.

This is nothing to do with Westminster, Brexit or anything else the SNP like to point their finger at, the separatists alone have cut council taxes to the bone.

The government needs to explain why it has decided to do this, and why it thinks motorists don’t deserve to drive on good quality surfaces.

As I have said so many times before we in Scotland deserves better than this  government.
