The Local Government Association has witten to the Treasury asking for more money to repair potholes.
Damage to our roads is costing businesses around £5 billion a year and some local roads might have to close unless more Government money is made available for resurfacing, said the LGA.
It added: "Further severe weather could now lead to a tipping point in many areas where roads will become so damaged they will have to close."
The LGA has written to Chief Secretary to the Treasury Danny Alexander asking him to provide greater capital funding for road maintenance.
