Surrey jobs could soon benefit from an extra £1.5 million of Government funding to improve roads in the county.
The Government has set-aside £100 million to ensure damage to roads in the country can be restored.
According to the Redhill and Reigate Life, the funding is welcomed but Surrey will need more investment to combat pothole problems in the region.
Surrey County Council (SCC) will invest £500,000 from their budget into repairs as well.
Dr Andrew Povey, SCC leader said: “The Government decided how much of the £100 million each council gets by using a formula based on how many kilometres of road local authorities have to look after.
“This is not a fair way of sharing out the money.
“Instead, a funding formula should be used which provides more money to areas with the busiest roads because they are under more strain and need more upkeep.”
According to Povey, Surrey has the busiest roads and the past winters temperatures and snow lead to increased road damage.
Povey believes that the county needs £200 million to get their roads up to standard and will then need continued investment from the Government to maintain it.
The road repair venture has also created or safeguarded jobs across the country and in Surrey alone repair teams have already fixed 20,000 potholes.
