It includes £30.3m to resurface roads and prevent potholes appearing following the damage caused during a particularly cold winter.

This adds to £6m which has already been set aside to ensure repairs can be made to potholes throughout the year.

Of this, £6.4m is being put into repairing residential roads, and more than £8.8m prioritised for the busiest A, B and C roads.

A further £2.8m is to be invested in improving rural roads, along with £950,00 for rural 'moss roads' which need special maintenance due to the wet and peaty ground they're built upon.

The spending has been announced in a year where government funding to repair damaged roads in Lancashire has been slashed by a quarter.
