potholes2IN a further commitment to helping Britain’s motorists, the Conservative-led Government has committed a further £6 billion to tackle potholes over the next six years. This is on top of the extra £1 billion that the Government has spent on road maintenance since the previous government was in power.
Awarded by the Government, the fund will help English local authorities repair potholes and improve local roads between 2015 and 2021.

The Transport Secretary, Patrick McLoughlin, has said the money would be enough to fix around 18 million potholes and defects across the country.

Commenting on the new funds, Robert Halfon, MP for Harlow, said: “I was extremely pleased with the grant. The £6 billion awarded to local councils will contribute to making British roads safer, and will particularly help Harlow, where I had already pushed for road repairs.”

Over £128 million will be going directly to authorities in Essex, such as Harlow. This announcement follows a £17.5million effort to fix 700 urban roads across Essex, and specifically 100 in Harlow itself.

“This is great news for the roads of Harlow, and we will finally see safer roads for a safer constituency.”
