I know it will not be responsible for all the road repairs but the ones used to access the site, around the site and those that connect the various transfer points. If you honestly think that they will just trundle a 70 tonne crane up any road without making sure the road is suitable then you are as gullable as you think the contracters are.
Where did I mention cranes, 70 tonne or otherwise? Stop inventing non-existent arguments to provide fake bolsters for your false stance, and avoid having to admit when you're wrong.
Whatever the traffic is, is irrelevant. The condition of the road at the time any single unit of traffic passes over it is only of minimal relevance. What does matter is that any given stretch of road only has a finite lifespan which is dictated by the total tonnage which passes over it and the total number of traffic units which passes over it.
In simple language, the more traffic units you send over it and the greater the total tonnage it has carried becomes, the sooner repairs/rebuilding is required. VE (if built as planned) will send a significantly large number of traffic units and total tonnage over numerous SIC roads, bringing forward the end of their useful lifespan markedly, and the need for the SIC budget for their share of the works costs at a much sooner date than would have otherwise been necessary were VE traffic not going to be.
Remedial works have to happen al the time, the council will look to get funding from other areas money for the rest of the infrastructure.
Where the money comes from was never part of my argument, only when the money will be required.
