All local highway authorities in England have been advised of their allocation from the £84 million funding to assist them to repair their roads damaged by this winter's severe weather.

The confirmation is to be accompanied by supporting documentation to show that the relevant delegated authority exist to accept the terms and condition of the grant.

The Ministry aims to have no more than 20 websites remaining in use by 31 March 2011.
