Calderdale will receive £380,034 of Government funding to repair roads damaged during the winter.

It is part of £183.5 million of extra funding made available by the Government following the wettest winter on record.

Calderdale Council’s head of planning and highways, Geoff Willerton, said: “This additional funding is very welcome and will be used on roads in Calderdale that most need attention following an exceptionally wet winter.

“We are looking into where this extra funding will be spent to have maximum effect.”
