East Sussex County Council will receive about £9 million a year from 2015/16.

The information follows the announcement in June 2013 that the Government intended to allocate £6 billion to Councils.

Over £4.7 billion will be shared between 115 councils, those with larger road networks receiving more cash.

A further £575 million will be available to help repair and maintain infrastructure such as junctions, bridges and street lighting.  And £578 million has been set aside for an incentive scheme to reward councils who demonstrate they are delivering value for money in carrying out cost effective improvements.

Just last month, East Sussex County Council unveiled a new machine they have bought to fix our roads, as well as a new way of reporting problems you spot: Jetpatcher and Fix My Street.  [From 3rd May 2016 Fix My Street will be replaced by www.eastsussexhighways.com]
