By Adrian Curtis


Motorists in Cambridgeshire are set to benefit from better roads following additional funding from the government.

Both Cambridgeshire and Peterborough have received the maximum amount of additional road maintenance funding from the Department for Transport. The funding includes a total of £2.5m to both the county and city councils in recognition for making the best use of funds available and prioritising the needs of the public.

This year Cambridgeshire also received funding totalling £990k to help prevent and fix potholes.

The county council’s assistant director of highways, Richard Lumley said: “We welcome this funding from the government which will help us keep our roads in good condition. Our roads are important to us and we are listening to people by spending more money on repairing and resurfacing our roads. We will also combine this with our specialist machines, known as the ‘dragon patcher’ so we continue our battle on potholes. People need to help us by coming forward and reporting them using our online tool.”
