Doncaster Council is set to receive £660,181 from the Government to help repair potholes on roads across the borough.

The funding is part of a £168million country-wide scheme that represents some of the biggest investment in the UK road network since the 1970’s.

Cabinet Member for Highways, Councillor Bill Mordue, said: “This most recent Government grant is good news for the people of Doncaster. The funding will ensure that more investment can be made into our highway network to not only repair, but to prevent potholes and road damage in years to come.”

The £660,181 allocated to Doncaster Council comes in addition to a grant of £521,794 given by the Government for road maintenance earlier this year. It will ensure that the Council will be able to invest in pothole repair and other planned improvement and preventative projects which will help improve the condition of our roads.

The £168million distributed by the Government in the Pothole Repair Fund was applied for by 148 authorities, all of which received a share.
