The Government has pledged £1.7bn to repair local roads and tackle 11 million potholes.
The multi-billion-pound infrastructure package will help improve local roads, repair bridges and fill in millions of potholes.
The money will also be used by councils to install priority bus lanes, create new projects to improve air quality, and enhance road safety.
Cllr David Renard, the Local Government Association’s transport spokesman, said: ‘Our local roads face a repairs backlog of £10bn and rising, so this funding will help.
’To help councils go further to maintain our roads, they need devolved infrastructure and public transport budgets, as well as long-term funding certainty as enjoyed by Highways England and Network Rail.'
