Kingston’s roads will benefit from an extra £396,000 in funding to repair potholes and resurface roads, the Council has said. 

The Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond announced in the 2018 Budget an £420m would be made available to local authorities to tackle potholes and minor road works.

Cllr Liz Green, Leader of Kingston Council, said: “This is fantastic news for the borough. 

“The council has over 200 miles of roads that it is responsible for maintaining and the much-needed funding will help us with pothole repairs; carriageway patching and resurfacing projects.

“We are working to relieve the pressure of a growing population on the borough’s transport network by providing new facilities for cycling and walking, while improving road safety and public spaces. This funding is part of ensuring the roads are in good shape."
