The council made a successful bid to the Department for Transport for this funding as well as an extra £251,000 for filling potholes

The council has already announced an investment of £4,665,000 for the 2014/15 financial year in repairing roads and pavements across the borough and £870,000 has been secured from Transport for London. This brings Ealing Council’s total road and pavements repair budget to £6,188,000.

The main roads that will benefit from the extra money are:

• Acton High Street (from Market Place to Winchester Street)
• Greenford Road (from Daryngton Drive to Uneeda Drive)
• Greenford Road (from 120 Uxbridge Road to Timber Yard)

The resurfacing on Acton High Street is already complete. The rest of the works will take place before April 2015.

Councillor Bassam Mahfouz, cabinet member for transport and environment, said: “We have made some successful bids for funding, topping up our already substantial investment in road and pavement renewal. With winter approaching, the £251,000 for potholes is especially welcome. Taken altogether, the council will have nearly £6.2 million to spend on improving roads and pavements in this financial year.”
