More than £55m has been approved to deliver the largest investment for Nottinghamshire’s highways in recent years.
A total of £55.5m will be invested into the county’s highways and transport network over the next year by Nottinghamshire County Council.
More than £22m of funding secured will help deliver the Southwell Flood Risk Alleviation scheme, and street lighting upgrades.
Other proposed highways programmes included £26.54m maintenance to improve roads and highway assets, £5.57m allocated to integrated transport schemes, £525,000 to deliver the traffic management revenue programme, and £447,000 for travel planning.
John Cottee, chairman of the council’s communities and place committee, said: “This significant investment reflects our ongoing commitment to improving Nottinghamshire’s highways and transport network.
“Not only will the programme further improve the quality of road repairs and maintenance with new technology, it will also enable us to deliver transport schemes, major projects and road safety measures.
“The investment is part of our strategy to support the local economy.”
