An extra £17.5million is going to be spent fixing potholes in Essex.

The County Council has released a list of 700 roads that will benefit from an extra £17.5million being invested to fix potholes and other defects.

It means in total over £32million will now be spent repairing roads here.

An extra 20 four-man-crews, doubling the number of maintenance crews in the county, will be working until 31 March 2015 to bring roads up to standard.

Money will be spent on:

- Fixing carriageway defects on Priority 1 and Priority 2 roads.
