Jersey minister calls for '£3m for island's roads'

An extra £3m a year needs to be spent on improving Jersey's roads, according to the island's Transport Minister.

Deputy Kevin Lewis said three years of the extra funding would help bring the island's road system up-to-date.

About £4m a year is already spent on maintaining Jersey's roads, £3.2m of which is expected to be spent on resurfacing during 2013.

Deputy Lewis said a priority list had been drawn up, and he would be asking the Treasury Minister for the funds.
