More than £12 MILLION is going to go towards repairing roads across Essex.

Drivers and cyclists here will benefit thanks to the investment announced by the Roads Minister today.

The money will also go towards small safety, bus priority or walking and cycling schemes.

Roads Minister Jesse Noman said:

"Potholes are a huge problem for all road users, and too often we see issues occurring at the same place time after time.

"That is why the Government is investing more in improving our roads than at any time before - £15 billion between 2015 and 2020 and a further £28.8 billion to 2025. Plus an immediate extra £420 million for potholes and local road maintenance just this year.

"The East will be getting an extra £54 million this winter to keep its roads in good condition to keep drivers and cyclists safe."
