I'm delighted with the news that £6,614,000 will be provided to improve the condition of roads in Nottinghamshire.
The Chancellor, Philip Hammond, announced at the Budget that a £420 million fund will be created to tackle potholes and other roadworks. Nottinghamshire County Council will receive £6,614,000 to repair potholes, keep local bridges and structures open and safe, and help with other highways works that may be needed.
The Budget also announced the biggest ever single cash injection to improve England's roads, meaning that people can get to and from home and work quicker, boosting the local economy and improving air quality.
It's fantastic that Nottinghamshire County Council will receive significant funding to help improve our roads. The money will help to keep pedestrians and drivers safe across Mansfield and Warsop. This additional funding represents a significant boost in road maintenance and is on top of £950 million we are already providing to councils across the country this year for local highways maintenance.
