According to an annual report by the Asphalt Industry Alliance (AIA), 17% of local and rural roads are in drastic need of maintenance for potholes or risk full resurfacing or closure in the next five years. The survey based on responses from 63% of councils in England and Wales reported that local authorities would require £12bn in funding to clear a maintenance backlog. The number of potholes filled by councils in England last year fell by 19%, with London recording the biggest decline of 43%. Edmund King, president of the AA, said: “The government needs to confront the funding shortfall head on and help to fund repairs and resurfacing work quicker.”

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan believes cars should be banned from roads near schools to reduce air pollution, calling on boroughs to follow the examples set by Camden and the City of London. He commented: “Forty or fifty years ago we thought smoking was bad and yet our forebears took no action. We know air quality is a killer, it makes you sick and no action has been taken. It's a health emergency.”
