Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin announces £6 billion fund to help tackle potholes and improve local roads. The government will be providing local authorities (in England, not including London) with just under £6 billion over the next 6 years for maintenance of local highways. Of this funding, £4.7 billion will be allocated according to a needs-based formula, with £578 million to incentivise good asset management and efficiencies, and £575 million reserved for a challenge fund for large one-off maintenance and renewal projects.
