The Department for Transport (DfT) has committed nearly £50m to fixing potholes across the country as part of a multi-million pound investment strategy aimed at improving England’s roads.

Transport minister Jesse Norman yesterday announced £200m would be ploughed into England’s struggling local roads.

Speaking in York, the minister said there will be £46m for fixing one million potholes and £151m for a local highways maintenance incentive fund.

‘People need great roads to get about, do business and see friends and family,’ said Mr Norman.

‘We’re investing record amounts at present to improve the condition of our roads, so drivers and cyclists don’t have to dodge potholes to travel safely.’
