A £2.1million government grant will pay for repairs to the Royal Borough's roads, pavements and walkways damaged in the recent floods.
More than £1.5million of the grant will cover 40 resurfacing works including a crucial 750m stretch along the A308 Windsor Road and Dedworth Road in August.
A total of £450,000 will cover repairs to footways and rights of way including the washed away riverbank at Thames Path in Hurley, while helping people in private roads meet their costs.
There will be £100,000 to improve drainage systems, including ditch clearance, gulley clearing and repairs, plus £50,000 checking the safety of bridges.
A further £1.65million is being spent as part of the council’s annual resurfacing and patching programme which will run alongside the flood repair scheme across the borough.
