Liberal Democrats Manifesto


After years of underinvestment, the UK’s road network has been left in a poor condition. 2023 is already the third worst year on record for pothole related breakdowns, representing one of the biggest issues to constituents about our road network. That’s why we at Kiely Bros are asking the Liberal Democrats to commit to: 

1 Fully restore local authority’s road maintenance budgets. As already proposed by the Liberal Democrats in April 2023, a commitment from the government to ensure local authorities will have the necessary resources at their disposal to tackle the current backlog of repairs. 

2 Ensure funding for road maintenance is ringfenced. We believe in order to fund the estimated £14bn backlog of road maintenance repairs that our road network needs, funding should be dedicated exclusively for this purpose. 

3 More cost-effective investment into preventative road surface dressing treatments. Change the approach to road maintenance from reactive to preventative. Surface dressing preserves, protects and extends the life of existing asphalt infrastructure for cheaper, reducing reactive maintenance costs and leading to fewer potholes. 

4 Provide local governments with better guidance on road maintenance. Current road maintenance processes are currently inefficient, outdated and often too expensive. We call for cost effective road maintenance guidelines supported by industry, which emphasises durable solutions like road surface dressing. 

5 Ensure a sustainable transport future. To ensure a sustainable future, road maintenance should be prioritised instead of new road building. Surface dressing is greener than traditional road surfacing methods, emitting less carbon per m2 and extending the lifespan of existing infrastructure.
