[周刊王CTWANT] The Local Government Association (LGA), which represents more than 350 councils in England and Wales, pointed out on 31 August that since about 60% of the bitumen in the European market comes from Russia, the Moscow authorities implemented bitumen exports after the start of the Russian-Ukrainian war. The embargo has caused the cost of road maintenance in the UK to continue to soar, with some sections of the road taking up to 10 years to repair successfully, in addition to an extra £12bn.
