WEST Berkshire Council will receive £336,000 funding to help repair potholes – more than any other unitary authority in the South East.
The Government says the figure will be enough for the council to patch up 6,300 potholes at a cost of £53 each.
The £336,000 is significantly more than the £173,000 awarded to Windsor and Maidenhead and £203,000 given to Wokingham.
Hampshire will receive £2,123,000 and Oxfordshire £1,315,000.
The money will come from a £70m Pothole Fund, which will be allocated next year.
