Councils in the South West of the country are to receive the largest amount of funding from the recently announced Pothole Fund.
South West councils have been allocated £90,031,000 of the £500million funding, with Devon receiving over £23 million.
This is the second instalment from the £2.5billion Potholes Fund, providing £500million a year between 2020/21 and 2024/25, announced by the Chancellor in the 2020 Budget – and is part of wider funding the Department provides for road maintenance, totalling more than £1.1billion across England in 2021/22.
Elsewhere, over £82 million was awarded to the South East, £68m to the East of England and £66m to the North West of the Country.
