The Liverpool City Region Metro Mayor has been given an extra £3.7m to fix 75,000 potholes across Merseyside and Halton to improve road standards for drivers, saving them money on repairs and reducing delays.
The cash is part of £200 million allocated to councils to fix four million potholes across England. This funding builds on the £2.7 billion of highways maintenance funding, already committed between tax years 2022-25.
Conservative campaigners in Wallasey and Moreton are urging residents to report pot holes to the Council's Highways Department to help secure a fair share of the cash to fix local roads.
Commenting, Transport Secretary Mark Harper said: “Potholes are a blight on Britain’s roads.
"This latest round of funding shows we are committed to supporting all road users – from motorists to cyclists and bus passengers – and making journeys smoother and safer for all.”
