Nottinghamshire County Council is to receive over £800,000 to repair potholes.

The funding is from the government, and is part of a £5.6 million pot which is being shared by nine councils across the East Midlands.

It is estimated that the £839,000 allocated to Nottinghamshire County Council will help repair around 15,830 potholes.

Councillor Alan Rhodes, leader of the county council, said: “This is welcome news, coming as it does against a backdrop of more than £212m savings that we as an authority have had to make since 2010 as a result of government funding cuts and a further £50m which we are having to find over the next four years.

“As the 11th largest county in the UK, the council looks after a network of around 2,600 miles of road – a mixture of urban and rural - and spends more than £2.8m a year on carriageway repairs such as patching and filling in potholes.

“The extra £839,000 will enable us to fund the repair of around 15,830 more potholes across the county.”
