South Yorkshire councils will benefit from almost Â£700,000 of Government money to help repair potholes.
The latest round of funding from the Pothole Action Fund was announced today, with Doncaster set to receive £250,000 in the coming financial year, Rotherham due for £229,000 and Barnsley £218,000.
Sheffield gets its pothole repair money through Streets Ahead, a private finance initiative.
Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin said: “This is just one part of our unprecedented investment in local road maintenance over the next five years. We are giving a record £488 million to local authorities in the region that will support the Northern Powerhouse and improve journeys for all.”
