Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin said: "This extra money will help make a real difference to the millions of road users and residents across England who rely on local roads, giving them safer and smoother journeys."

Councils will also have the chance to bid for a share of an extra £200m fund to repair potholes following an announcement in Wednesday's budget.
