The spell of sustained adverse weather conditions which enveloped much of the UK throughout the tail-end of 2010 and the beginning of this year has resulted in an increased number of hazardous potholes being present on highways up and down the country.
In order to combat this issue, the Department of Transport has revealed that it will provide in excess of £100 million in additional funding to councils in England for the local authorities to spend on repairing potholes in their area.
Phillip Hammond, transport secretary and Conservative MP for the constituency of Runnymede and Weybridge, commented: "This money should make a real difference to the millions of drivers who are fed up with having to continually battle against dangerous potholes, giving them safer and smoother journeys."
