A grant of more than £300,000 has been given to the borough to repair potholes.

Redbridge Council has received almost £325,000 from the Department for Transport to tackle the problem.

Cllr Baldesh Kaur Nijjar, cabinet member for the environment, said: “I am delighted to announce that the council has secured this grant money.

“We are at this time assessing which areas will be treated with the money available. We estimate that the council will be able to repair around 8,000 potholes by March 2015.

“We understand potholes aren’t just ugly and inconvenient; they also represent a potential hazard for motorists, cyclists and those crossing the borough’s roads.

“We are committed to ensuring Redbridge’s roads are as safe as possible and this is a real step forward in improving their safety.”
