Funding to repair potholes has been doubled in the Budget

Click HERE to Report A Road Defect The Government will spend an extra £100million on filling potholes in England, Scotland and Wales.

It’s on top of a £100million ‘exceptional payment’ announced last month for road repairs following severe winter weather.

Transport Secretary Philip Hammond said: “Potholes are a menace to all road users and I want councils to make fixing them a priority.

“That is why, when more funding became available, I agreed with the Chancellor that we would double the amount of money we are providing for repairs to be carried out.”

New potholes are formed during cold weather by water expanding as it freezes, forcing minor cracks to widen until repetitive freezing and thawing tears the surface apart.
