£2.5m is pledged to mend potholes on county’s roads

Derbyshire County Council has been awarded �2.48m by the Government to tackle the problem of potholes.

Derbyshire County Council has been awarded �2.48m by the Government to tackle the problem of potholes.

Nearly £2.5 million in Government cash has been allocated to mend potholes on Derbyshire’s roads.

But council chiefs warn the funding is unlikely to be enough to fix them all.

Allocated from a central fund, the £2.48m could potentially be used to fix 46,000 potholes.

Derbyshire County Council’s Deputy Cabinet Member for Jobs, Economy and Transport, Cllr Dean Collins, said: “Potholes are a nuisance for all those who use the roads, and we’ve had our workers and contractors fixing them throughout the year.

“Although this cash is welcome it just won’t be enough to fix all the potholes that have appeared since the severe wet weather. Hundreds of new potholes appear each week.

“But we will step up our efforts to fix as many as possible with the money from the Government, and by spending the money that we have set aside from our budgets.”
