To ask Her Majesty's Government whether the £420 million allocated for local highways maintenance in the 2018 Budget must be spent by local authorities by 31 March; whether there are any circumstances in which it can be rolled over into the following year; and how any unspent funding will be reallocated.

It is the Government’s intention for the additional £420 million funding for 2018/19 for local highways maintenance capital funding as announced in the Budget 2018 to be utilised by end of this financial year. This funding is to support the repair of potholes, to keep local bridges and structures open and safe, and to aid other minor highway works that may be needed. It is for each highway authority to determine how this funding is used based on their own local assessments and requirements.
