Across England more than 3 million potholes to be filled as part of the biggest investment in roads since the 1970s.
In June 2014 the government outlined plans to help fill more than 3 million potholes as part of a massive investment in the country’s local and major roads.
Councils across England have been allocated £168 million of funding from a dedicated Pothole Repair Fund. As a condition of receiving the money local authorities are required to publish quarterly progress updates on how many potholes have been repaired.
This is the latest in a series of announcements which will see more than £24 billion spent on England’s strategic road network between 2010 and 2021 – the biggest investment in the road network since the 1970s.
In Suffolk the Pothole funding is £2,943,849 which will repair a potential 55,000 potholes. This will be added to the £2,944,452 Weather Repair Fund allocated in March 2014
