Government Claims its Investing £6bn in Mending Potholes and Fixing up the Roads

By Gary Cutlack on at

The government has revealed its plans for road spending over the next few years, with the headline figure it's arrived at being a total spend of £6bn on repairing English roads between now and the year 2021.

Equivalent to around  £976 a year, the spending plan has been mapped out by the DoT, so you can see how much your local authority should have sloshing about in its roads fund to fix up local wobbly spots over the next few years.

Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin said: "The £6 billion funding I am announcing today will put an end to short term fixes and will mean we have committed £10 billion between 2010 and 2021. This huge investment is part of our long term economic plan to ensure we have a transport network fit for the 21st century." [Gov.uk]
