Hundreds of potholes on East Yorkshire's roads are to be repaired after a multimillion-pound government grant was awarded to a council.
East Riding of Yorkshire Council said the £2.6m from the Department of Transport would be used to fix the defects.
The cash was also to be used to fund a "programme of maintenance" aimed at preventing the holes recurring.
Work on the damaged roads is expected to begin over the summer months.
Councillor Chris Matthews, responsible for highways in the county, said the funding would allow them "to repair a substantial number of potholes and other road defects".
