Some pothole-ridden roads in Preston and South Ribble are to be resurfaced.

Lancashire County Council has approved a £30million investment in transport to repair damage caused by the weather throughout winter.

Roads, pavements and bridges are all set for major works in the next 12 months.

Cabinet member for highways and transport county councillor Keith Iddon said: “Lancashire’s roads are vital to our economy, ensuring people and goods can travel efficiently, and it’s essential that we prioritise funding accordingly to keep them in good condition.

“The weather this winter has been worse than average, which is why we’ve been dealing with so many potholes over recent months. We know that good roads are a priority for residents and businesses which is why we have put £10m into this year’s budget to fix potholes, as well as make structural repairs which will help to prevent them appearing in the first place.

“This maintenance programme will extend the life of our roads and entirely replace some of the most worn-out surfaces. We’ll also be patching many small sections where areas of potholes have appeared over the winter, with the warmer weather allowing us to make good quality repairs and minimise the need for repeat visits in the same locations.”
