Millions of pounds is to be spent repairing potholes in the region.
Northamptonshire will be given £3 million to fix 62,000 potholes, while Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire and Milton Keynes will get smaller amounts of funding from the government.
Meanwhile, Norfolk gets the largest amount at nearly £5.5 million to fix over 100,000 potholes while Essex will get £4.4 million and Suffolk over £2.2 million.
The government says its the biggest investment in roads since the 70s.
"At the end of the last financial year, there was a backlog of some £80 million of potholes and surface deteriorations," Councillor Toby Coke from Norfolk County Council said.
"Yes, it's good news but it's more or less papering over the cracks."
