The Government has announced that Cumbria is set to benefit from almost £1.5 million to help with pothole repairs.
The county has been hit particularly hard following the widespread flooding in December.
Councils across the north west have been allocated £6.4 million, with Cumbria receiving the largest share.
The money will be used to fix the estimated 27,000 potholes across the county.
It's been announced that the A591 will re-open on May 13th.
The Secretary of State for Transport, Patrick McLoughlin, made the announcement during a visit to the damaged road.
Huge parts of the road, which is main route linking the North and South Lakes, were washed away after Storm Desmond hit the region in December.
Work is underway to repair Eamont Bridge in Cumbria, which was damaged by December's flooding.
Cumbria County Council installed a temporary dam beneath the bridge last weekend, and are now getting on with the repairs.
Work is continuing at the flood-hit Eamont Bridge near Penrith to assess damage to the structure.
Contractors have installed a dam to slow the flow of water around the bridge that will enable divers to check what repairs are needed.
Workers are digging a series of channels underneath the A592 near Ullswater.
The idea is that the next time there is heavy rain, it will wash down the fells and go under the road, rather than damaging the surface.
A 4.3km stretch of the A592 near Ullswater will be closed for the next four weeks, to allow contractors to repair flood damage.Read the full story ›
