An extra £3m will be spent on roads in Buckinghamshire, the county council has agreed.

The one-off spend was agreed by all 49 councillors and will be spent on reducing the backlog of roads maintenance.

The money will come from the council's reserve budget and will be spent in the next 12 months.

It is in addition to £25m already budgeted to be spent on road surfacing over the next two years.

Council leader Martin Tett said: "It's very important that we are seen as a county council to respond to what residents want.

"[This money] is on top of the £11m we spend each year on basic repairs."

He also called for the government to "capital fund a major upgrade".

"Even with this extra money we don't have enough resources to repair all of our roads," he added.
