To ask the Minister of State, Department for Transport what estimate he has made of the aggregate cost to local authorities in (a) Northamptonshire and (b) England of repairs to local roads as a result of the recent cold weather. (321297)

The maintenance of local roads in England is a matter for each local highway authority. It is for each individual authority to assess which parts of its network are in need of repair and what standards should be applied, based upon their local knowledge.

It will be for local highway authorities to estimate the costs of repairing damage to their roads, including where they consider damage was caused by this winter.
