Devon County Council have announced the streets which are set for pothole patching works under a £3 million central government scheme
Roads in Exmouth have been earmarked for potholes repairs under the £3 million county council scheme.
Devon County Council has announced that a number of roads in Exmouth and Budleigh Salterton will get repaired after the funds were allocated by central government.
Moorfield Road, St John’s Road, Stevenstone Road, Cranford View, Foxholes Hill, Cranford Avenue and Hamilton Road have all been included costing the council more than £60,000.
The council says most of the work will be patching, but resurfacing will alos be carried out. The funding allocation has been determined using pothole frequency data.
Councillor Stuart Hughes, Devon County Council cabinet member for highway management, said: “This investment of more than £3 million is being spent on roads that need it the most and are local priorities, and we’re making sure that the money goes as far as possible.
“With the biggest road network of any local authority in the country it’s impossible to repair every road in Devon that needs attention but we’re making the best use of the money we’ve been given by government.”
The Pothole Action Fund repair schemes have to be completed before April.
