A council has secured a multi-million pound Government grant to spend on improving its roads.
The Department for Transport has given Lincolnshire County Council £6.45m to be spent over the next two years on renewing, repairing and extending the life of roads across the county.
The money can be used for improvements such as road resurfacing, maintenance to bridges or repairing damage caused by severe weather, such as the recent heavy rain.
Executive member for highways and transportation, Coun William Webb (Con), said: “We’re delighted the Government has made this significant amount of additional funding available, especially given the difficult financial climate.
“Lincolnshire faces particular challenges for highways maintenance because of its size and rurality, so any additional funding is always welcome.
“We’ll ensure that this money is put to good use.”
