Derbyshire's roads to benefit from Government funding

More than eight million pounds has been set aside for work to be done on the highways.

You can expect more repair work on Derbyshire's roads over the next few months.

It's after the government allocated more than eight million pounds for work to be done on local highways-before April.

The County Council's deputy leader Simon Spencer says they'll be fixing more potholes and resurfacing some rural roads; "Hopefully, by the end of March, we will have delivered a considerable amount of that programme."

"It's going to be very weather dependent, and all I would ask of Derbyshire residents is to be patient with us, because there's going to be a bit of inconvenience, but we're going to try and improve the roads for everybody."
