More than £18 million looks set to be spent on roads across Nottinghamshire next year repairing them and making them safer for road users in the county.
The council has provisionally allocated more than £18 million out of next years budget for various things including road resurfacing and new cycle routes.
The plan also lays out provisional funding for a series of major projects to be commenced in the 2015/2016 year, including a new Worksop Bus Station and improvements to Hucknall town centre, which takes the amount the council look set to spend on county roads next year to nearly £30 million.
Andy Warrington, the County Council’s service director for highways said:
“The proposed packages of highway schemes for 2015/16 aim to deliver improvements for all road users right across the county within the funding available, focusing especially on improvements to help people access work and leisure destinations more easily.
“The schemes have been developed to reflect a balance of local community requests and priorities, as well as corporate commitments, evidence of actual need and value for money.”
The provisional funding will also cover flood alleviation, street lighting renewal and footway maintenance.
