Stuck in a rut - the Motorways of England

Man in a Shed has been driving on the Motorways of England this weekend and has the following two observations:

1) Large amount on the inside lanes of these motorways are deformed by heavy lorries to such an extent as to require driving corrections. ( aka large ruts in the road ). Clearly maintenance isn't being done - or roads aren't being repaired to the needed standard.
2) Often before bridges there are now deformations in the road which are getting deeper.

Since things never used to be like this Man in a Shed deduces that the government isn't paying for road maintenance at the moment. ( Don't even look around the roads of Surrey these days ).

Is this part of a wider financial crisis ?

We of course will never be told.
