Note: In August 2012 Sheffield City Council entered into a 25-year Highway Maintenance Private Finance Initiative. The Department provides Sheffield City Council with a fixed payment of £47.664 million per annum to fund the contract, and in consequence the Council is no longer eligible for separate highway maintenance funding.
