£7 million funding for Cumbria’s flood damaged roads
Cumbria County Council is set to receive a further £7.2 million for road repairs after flooding.
Roads in Cumbria damaged by devastating flooding in 2009 are to be repaired thanks to government funding, Transport Secretary, Patrick McLoughlin has announced.
Cumbria County Council is set to receive a further £7.2 million to allow repairs to be carried out to highway slopes, enhanced drainage, culvert repairs and repairs to footways and bridges. Main Street in Cockermouth is also set to benefit and will be restored to the standard it was before the flooding.
Transport Secretary, Patrick McLoughlin said:
Reliable local highways are crucial to communities and provides important links for people to work, shops, services, families and friends.
The flooding that Cumbria encountered in 2009 devastated many roads and I know how important it is for the people in the area for the repairs to happen. That is why this government has been committed to working with Cumbria County Council to ensure this happens. I am pleased to announce further funding to support Cumbria County Council’s vital work.
The funding being announced is the final payment to Cumbria County Council to help restore the county’s damaged infrastructure caused by the 2009 flooding event.
