A road scheme to improve the worst rural and residential roads in the county has been accelerated.

West Sussex County Council’s Better Roads scheme has already repaired half the roads due to be treated in four months. The work was scheduled to last two years.

Pieter Montyn, council cabinet member for highways and transport, said: “We have been able to draw down £1.5 million from next year’s budget so we can do work originally planned for 2015 now.

“This means we can get 10% of next year’s programme done a year early.”

To find out if a road is due to be repaired, visit the West Sussex Highways website and type the name of the road or town into the search bar.
