Doncaster council is due to recieve more than half a million pounds of government funding to help repair local roads damaged by severe weather.

The funding was confirmed by Transport Secretary, Patrick McLoughlin, today, following yesterday’s budget which included a further £168 million to tackle potholes on England’s roads.

A total of £10.3million has been allocated to the Yorkshire and the Humber region, out of which Doncaster council will recieve £521,974 in funding, £606,045 will be given to Barnsley council and £392,016 to Rotherham council.

Patrick McLoughlin said: “Damage to roads causes misery for drivers and local communities and the severe weather over the last few months has made the problem worse.”

“This extra money will help make a real difference to the millions of road users and residents across Yorkshire and Humber who rely on local roads, giving them safer and smoother journeys.
