“The £168 million that was announced in the budget for England will be allocated through a bid based Fund, with further guidance on the application process published in the coming weeks.
“Introducing competition to the process will help drive efficiency and I hope that Leicestershire County Council submits a strong application for funding.”

During the coming months a number of areas in Enderby and Blaby District are to be the subject of carriageway maintenance.
