Court backs council after Amey refused to use up-to-date list of crumbling streets
ROADS across Birmingham were left unrepaired because council contractor Amey ignored anything not on an out-of-date list.
This week the city council claimed a Court of Appeal victory in a four-year legal wrangle to force the maintenance contractor to fix roads that it refused to touch.
The company signed a £2.7 billion deal in 2010 to look after the road network.
Stewart Stacey, Birmingham City Council cabinet member for roads, said Amey should now get to work on delivering the repairs taxpayers expected.
