Councils have been told how much money they will receive from the fund announced in March’s Budget to repair local roads.
Devon County Council secured £9.1M; Kent a total of £6.7M; Hampshire £6.1M; and Norfolk and Lincolnshire £5.4M each.
Local authorities receiving money from the fund are required to publish monthly progress updates on how many potholes they have repaired. All repair works have to be completed by the end of March 2015.
The government has plans to spend £24bn on England’s strategic road network between 2010 and 2021.
Transport secretary Patrick McLoughlin said: “Potholes are the bane of all our lives and the funding announced today is an important step in ridding our roads of this menace.
“But it is only one part of a massive programme of investment to get our country up to speed as part of this government’s long term economic plan. By building, repairing and renewing our key infrastructure we will ensure the future growth and prosperity of this country.”
