Rutland County Council to invest £2.4m in repairing potholes and roads
Rutland County Council will invest a total of £2.4m into roads over the next year, making sure they remain among some of the best in England.
All of the funding comes from central government, rather than council tax contributions, and will be spent on: repairing potholes, replacing damaged sections of road, surfacing to extend the life of roads by up to five years, repairs to bridges following scheduled inspections and repairing and replacing paths.
Coun Lucy Stephenson, council’s cabinet member for highways, said: “It’s fantastic the county is benefitting from further investment in its roads. This means that more money is being made available for highway repairs than last year. We’ve put a lot of work into getting the highest possible rating for our highways service."
