Millions to be spent on fixing county's roads

An extra £3.72m is to be spent by a local authority to repair roads.

Durham County Council was given the money from the government's Road Resurfacing Fund.

The £8.3bn fund was created in October 2023 from money reallocated from HS2 budgets.

The council said the additional repairs would improve the "structural integrity and resilience of the road network".

The money was given to the council to be spent in 2023-24 and 2024-25.

John Shuttleworth, the council's cabinet member for rural communities and highways, said: "At Durham County Council, we are responsible for maintaining almost 4,000km of carriageway, from busy A roads to small rural lanes.

"We welcome this additional funding, which will allow us to carry out more schemes over the coming year as part of our commitment to keeping County Durham moving."
