AN additional £140m is to be made available for councils to repair roads damaged by the bad weather and it is hoped that Harlow may benefit from some of that cash.

Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin has said the government is to provide an extra £36.5m to areas with the most severely damaged roads, while a further £103.5m will go to all councils in England.

Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin said: “Having the right infrastructure in place to support businesses and hardworking people is a crucial part of our long-term economic plan.

“This extra money will help make a real difference to the millions of road users and local residents who rely on local roads, giving them safer and smoother journeys.”

The Local Government Association (LGA) welcomed the investment but warned councils already faced a £10.5bn shortfall.

The DFT said the repairs should be completed before the summer holidays.

Councils will be required to publish information on their websites by the end of August showing where they have spent the money.
