Work to carry out nearly £3million of road repairs across the county has been approved by the council.

Derbyshire County Council’s cabinet agreed to accept a Government grant of £2.9m to repair roads up to March 2015 which have been damaged by the severe weather conditions last year. This will include using £600,000 to hire a jetpatcher to repair potholes across the county.

Deputy cabinet member for jobs, economy and transport, Councillor Dean Collins, said: “This money is a great boost to us in repairing roads which are important to residents as well as helping businesses stay better connected.”

Cabinet also agreed to spend £352,000 on schemes which had not been allocated from funding announced in 2012.
