Roads winter cash boost for Midlothian

Extra Scottish Government cash to improve the state of Midlothian’s roads after the big freeze has been welcomed by the local authority.

Midlothian Council has received £201,000 to help cover the impact of the snow and ice at the turn of the year.

The money is a share of the extra £15 million the Scottish Government has made available for councils to deal with urgent repairs on local roads and cover the extra costs of winter roads maintenance.
