The government has dished out £500m to local authorities in England to repair potholes, with the funding expected to fix the equivalent of 10 million potholes across the country.
It is the second of five equal instalments from the £2.5bn Potholes Fund, which will provide £500m a year between 2020/21 and 2024/25.
The average pothole costs £50 to fill in.
Transport minister Baroness Vere said: “We know potholes are more than just a nuisance – they can be dangerous to drivers and cyclists alike, and cause damage to thousands of vehicles every year.
“The funding allocated today will help councils ensure roads in their area are kept up to standard, and that the potholes that blight road users can be dealt with promptly.”
