Highway maintenance schemes
In the 2018 Budget the government provided an extra £420 million to help repair roads and footpaths (including pothole repairs) and to keep local bridges and structures open and safe. More information on this funding can be found in the Department for Transport's Roads Funding report:

The funding was distributed to all local authorities responsible for highway maintenance in England (outside London) using a government funding formula. Through this process the council was awarded an additional £4.897m. The funding had to be spent by March 2019.
One of the conditions of this extra funding was that we published a statement on our website setting out how the money had been spent. This statement and a full list of sites and schemes delivered can be found here:
