Cash boost for Derbyshire road repairs
15 July 2014
Derbyshire county council have approved work to carry out nearly £3 million of road repairs across the county.
The Cabinet have agreed to accept a Government grant of £2.9 million on Tuesday 15th July 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.
The Deputy Cabinet Member for Jobs, Economy and Transport, Councillor Dean Collins said:
"This money is a great boost to us in repairing local roads which are important to local residents as well as helping Derbyshire businesses stay better connected."
Cabinet also agreed to spend £352,000 on specific schemes which had not been allocated from £4 million of funding announced in December 2012.
Work will include road and pavement resurfacing and drainage improvement.
