CASH has been secured to fix a county’s potholed roads.

West Sussex County Council been given an extra £2.5m in government funding to deal with the problem. It’s part of £168m shared across the country.

It is anticipated – dependent on weather – that between 20,000 and 30,000 extra potholes will be repaired by April 2015 thanks to the grant.

The majority of this is expected to be done between January and April next year. Earlier this year, the county council also received £3.6m from the government to spend on fixing roads.
