Government allocates funding to repair local roads

Local councils have so far been allocated £168m from the government’s pothole repair fund, which it hopes authorities will use to fill around three million potholes across the UK.

Northamptonshire, Hampshire and Lancashire have received the greatest share of the fund, which was revealed in the chancellor’s Budget earlier this year. The Department for Transport (DfT) said the three authorities were able to demonstrate the best practice in highway maintenance, investing in new technology and specialist pothole repair teams.

In total, 148 local authorities applied and received a share of the fund including £10m to repair damaged roads in London.

Transport secretary Patrick McLoughin said: “Potholes are the bane of all our lives and the funding announced today is an important step in ridding our roads of this menace.

“By building, repairing and renewing our key infrastructure we will ensure the future growth and prosperity of this country,” he added.

All repair work is due to be completed by March and the DfT expects all local councils to publish quarterly updates.
