An extra £4.6 million from the Government is to be invested in the maintenance of the roads in Buckinghamshire.

The money is part of an additional £420 million announced by Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond in the October 2018 Budget.

The grant, to be used to repair potholes, road defects, bridges, and the local highways infrastructure generally, must be spent by March 2019.

Mark Shaw, Deputy Leader and Transport Cabinet Member at Buckinghamshire County Council, said: ‘The extra money for road repairs is very welcome, and we’ll be deciding in due course how and where it will be invested.

We’ve worked extremely hard to maintain our roads, and this year we’ve invested around £25 million to improve them.
