In October 2018, the Chancellor announced in the budget the government was allocating a further £420 million of new money for local highways maintenance. This additional resource is being allocated using the highways maintenance funding formula and is for the repair of roads (including potholes), bridges and local highways infrastructure generally.
Northamptonshire received £6.772m from this fund, £3,342,012 to be spent in 2018 to 2019 and the remainder in 2019 to 2020. The fund is being allocated to capital maintenance schemes that will improve the safety and accessibility of the highway network and improve network resilience. These schemes include strengthening of bridges, carriageway resurfacing and pothole repairs.
