Road repairs worth more than £90 million are set to take place across the West Midlands after the Department for Transport today confirmed new funding.
The West Midlands Integrated Transport Authority is among 28 councils and bodies to share in £275 million worth of funding for local infrastructure projects to improve local roads.
The DfT has awarded £39.9 million towards a £92 million, six-year programme to renew 211 miles of the West Midlands classified road network in urgent need of repair.
The investment will help deliver regeneration, economic growth and reduce environmental and business costs arising from poor highway condition.
Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin said: "Good quality local roads are essential for people to get on with their daily business and today's announcement will provide extra capacity where it is needed most.
"This government has put record funding in place for local roads as part of our long-term economic plan to improve journeys, create jobs and drive economic growth."
The money announced today is part of the £6 billion funding for local road maintenance announced in December.
The funding was awarded following a bidding process from local authorities and the winners put forward the strongest case.
