Lincolnshire County Council is to invest an extra £2 million in fixing pothole-strewn roads.
The money is in addition to the £6.5 million the Government has given to the county to improve the road network.
Councillor Richard Davies, Executive Member for Highways and Transportation, said: “As a result of strong financial management, we ended the last financial year with a small underspend. We have decided to inject £2 million of this surplus into road maintenance – specifically to repair potholes.
“We have already carried out more than 50,000 square metres of surface patching and two million square metres of surface dressing this year – so we are making a difference. This extra funding will help us to maintain this intensity and allow us to make improvements to a large part of Lincolnshire’s road network.”
