Cash boost for Derbyshire road repairs
Work to carry out £4 million of road repairs across the county has been approved by Derbyshire County Council.
Our Cabinet agreed to the programme of works on Tuesday to repair roads damaged by the severe weather conditions last year.
The funding has been granted by the Government and £2.625 million will be spent on work up to March 2014. The rest will be spent on work completed in 2014/15.
Councillor Dean Collins, Deputy Cabinet Member for Jobs, Economy and Transport said:
"Last year was an unusually wet summer which was followed by periods of snow and frost which led to severe damage being caused to many roads and pavements.
"We are working hard to provide an efficient transport network and this work will help us to achieve that by carrying out improvements where it is most needed."
Local county councillors were consulted to find out which roads were of the most concern to their residents.
Each road recommended was inspected and assessed by the county council to make sure it met the criteria for the grant.
Improvements will range from repairing potholes to major resurfacing.
