More than half a million pounds has been earmarked for pothole repairs on Islington’s roads.
The council has set aside an extra £550,000 to mend local streets damaged by the snow, ice and rain during the winter.
Cllr Rakhia Ismail, Islington Council’s executive member for sustainability, said: “We have just come through a particularly long and cold winter, which has caused significant extra pothole damage to local roads.
“Our pledge of an extra £550,000 will make roads safer for residents and visitors alike, whether they are cycling or driving.”
The repair programme is expected to start in June.
