Department for Transport local highways maintenance funding 2018

In October 2018, the Chancellor announced in the Budget that the Government was allocating a further £420 million of new money for local highway maintenance.

This additional resource was allocated using the highways maintenance funding formula. It was available to spend on the repair of roads (including potholes), bridges and local highways infrastructure generally.

We were allocated a total of £1,241,000 from this fund. We used this to fund a range of carriageway resurfacing schemes, pothole repair and patching projects, and street lighting improvements. You can find full details of the work on this page.
