Councillors can submit proposals for repairs on roads in their wards, which will be considered and prioritised for a share of the funding.

£4.3m will be used to repair road defects such as potholes on council-owned highways, and £3.5m is earmarked for A road repairs and improvement works on Dearne Valley Parkway and Park Springs Road.

A further £1m will be set aside for drainage, in a bid to alleviate future flooding.

More than half a million pounds will also be used for new street name plates, retrofitting LED lamps to traffic signals, and traffic sign works.
