A TOTAL of £730,000 has been set aside by Hillingdon Council to repair damage to the roads caused by the big freeze.
Already, £330,000 of damage has been identified to the borough's roads, with potholes a particular problem, as the effects of the cold weatehr are assessed.
It is estimated the repairs could run far higher, which is why the total sum of £730,000 has been released from the council budget.
Councillor Ray Puddifoot, the Leader of Hillingdon Council, said: "Across the country, roads will have been damaged by the cold weather.
"It is important that we repair them as soon as possible to prevent accidents, damage to vehicles and injury to people.
"In Hillingdon we will get on with this and get the job done as soon as possible."
