The cash, announced by the chancellor in the Budget in March, is aimed at helping councils repairs as many as 3 million potholes.

In total 148 authorities applied for funding and all will receive a share, with London receiving £10m.

All repair works have to be completed by the end of March 2015.

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.”
