star this property answer text <p>The Department for Transport provides capital funding to local highway authorities, including Essex County Council, from the local highways maintenance capital block grant. Harlow falls within Essex County Council's area of responsibility and therefore we do not allocate any funds directly to the Borough Council for road maintenance.</p><p> </p><p>Since 2004 the Department has allocated the following amounts to Essex for highway maintenance:</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><strong>Year</strong></td><td><p><strong>£m</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td>2004/05</td><td><p>12.626</p></td></tr><tr><td>2005/06</td><td><p>15.782</p></td></tr><tr><td>2006/07</td><td><p>16.682</p></td></tr><tr><td>2007/08</td><td><p>22.428</p></td></tr><tr><td>2008/09</td><td><p>20.706</p></td></tr><tr><td>2009/10</td><td><p>21.361</p></td></tr><tr><td>2010/11</td><td><p>20.959</p></td></tr><tr><td>2011/12</td><td><p>20.728</p></td></tr><tr><td>2012/13</td><td><p>19.838</p></td></tr><tr><td>2013/14</td><td><p>22.482*</p></td></tr><tr><td>2014/15</td><td><p>19.873*</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p>* includes the top up announced in the 2012 Autumn Statement.</p><p>The Department also allocated additional funding to authorities to help repair roads damaged by various weather events and this included a further £2.116 million to Essex County Council in 2010/11 and £5.301 million in March 2011. More recently the Department for Transport has agreed to allocate over £2.7 million due to the severe wet weather the country has encountered.</p><p> </p><p>A £200 million Pothole Fund was announced in the Budget on 19 March 2014.

Neither capital nor revenue highways maintenance funding is ring-fenced and it is for local highway authorities to decide upon their spending priorities across the whole range of services they provide.</p><p>The Department for Transport does not centrally hold information on what proportion of this funding is spent by Essex County Council on repairing potholes.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The Department does not estimate the cost per mile of building cycle lanes. Cycling infrastructure varies in design and cost due to the location and scheme design. The provision of cycling facilities is a matter for local authorities and as such they are best placed to determine the spend per mile for building cycle lanes. The Department does provide best practice information in cycle infrastructure design through its publication <em>Cycle Infrastructure Design</em> (Local Transport Note 2/08). The Department encourages local authorities, both in urban and rural areas, to obtain best value in the provision of highways infrastructure.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this
