Cambridgeshire roads are about to get an extra £2 million spent on them to fix potholes after a successful bid to Government.

The County Council has found out, Friday, that the authority was successful in the bid and has been given an extra £1,933,337 for highway repairs.

This is on top of the £1,531,297 that the council was awarded in March this year to help repair potholes following the bad weather.

This means the Council has successfully made the case to Government that the county deserves the extra funding. It received in total around £3.5 million on top of the £10 million road maintenance grant it had been given.

Cambridgeshire County Councillor Peter Reeve, Vice-Chairman of the Highways and Community Infrastructure Committee, said: "This is great news and shows that Cambridgeshire County Council made a good case to Government. The money will be well spent on repairing our roads and paths. Fixing potholes is a continuous job for the authority and is vital to keep Cambridgeshire moving."
