The funding is the second of five equal instalments from the £2.5 billion Potholes Fund, announced by the Chancellor in the 2020 Budget, which will provide half a billion pounds of funding each year between 2020/21 and 2024/25.
Nottinghamshire County Council’s allocation in this instalment is £8,280,000.
Tom Randall, MP, said: “I know potholes are the bane of many drivers’ lives. They’re not only unsightly but can be dangerous.
“I have raised the issue with the government since my first days in Parliament and I’m very pleased to see this latest tranche of money released to help fix the problem.
“To help get pot holes fixed as quickly as possible, I encourage Gedling residents to report any pot holes on the Nottinghamshire County Council’s website or on the MyNotts app.
Transport Minister Baroness Vere said: “We know potholes are more than just a nuisance – they can be dangerous to drivers and cyclists alike, and cause damage to thousands of vehicles every year.
“The funding allocated today will help councils ensure roads in their area are kept up to standard, and that the potholes that blight road users can be dealt with promptly.”
