Leicestershire County Council has agreed to spend £13 million to repair the county's roads, buy new gritters and tackle debt.
The money is the council's predicted underspend on this year's £300 million budget.
- £2 million will be used to replace the Aylestone Lane footbridge, over the railway at Wigston and patching work on roads
- £1.2 million will be spent to replace five gritters as well as eight low-floor, wheelchair-accessible vehicles for adult social care
- £10 million will be used to repay debt and reduce borrowing costs by £800,000 per year
