MORE than 115 miles of roads have been repaired as part of Worcestershire County Council's Driving Home scheme.

The works, which include repairing and resurfacing, have directly impacted more than 12,000 homes and 27,000 residents in all six districts, including Bromsgrove.

By April, the £12m project will have seen improvements made to 150 miles of road since its launch in 2016.

Cllr Alan Amos, cabinet member with responsibility for highways, said: "Residents have told us which roads matter to them the most and we've listened.

""We've carried out improvements on over 115 miles of roads which is making a massive difference to people all across the county.

"Worcestershire has some of the best roads in the country and Driving Home is making them even better."

An extra £6m is also being invested to improve more than 50 miles of footpaths.

The county council is on track to improve over 70 stretches of pavements across the county by April 2018.
