More money for road maintenance across Cambridgeshire

The government has announced further funding which will benefit roads in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.

Both Cambridgeshire and Peterborough have received the maximum amount of additional road maintenance funding from the Department for Transport.

This funding means almost £3.1m (£2.5m for Cambridgeshire County Council and £580k for Peterborough City Council) has been awarded to both the county and city council in recognition for making the best use of funds available and prioritising the needs of the public.

This year (2019-20), Cambridgeshire and Peterborough have also received funding totalling £990k to help prevent and fix potholes.

Cambridgeshire County Council’s Assistant Director of Highways, Richard Lumley, welcomed the funding, saying :

 “Our roads are important to us and we are listening to people by spending more money on repairing and resurfacing our roads in Cambridgeshire. We will also combine this with our specialist machines, known as the ‘dragon patcher’ so we continue our battle on potholes.”

In order to keep our roads maintained, people need to report them using Council's online tool.
