The Local Highways Maintenance Challenge Fund was first announced in the 2014 Autumn Statements. Following a competition in 2015, Tranche 1 was launched and, with additional schemes added in the summer of 2015, 34 schemes were funded.

Bidding for the first element of Tranche 2 was announced earlier in March 2017 to those authorities who had expressed an interest. This element comprises of a total of £75 million for works during 2017/18. The Challenge Fund reflects the government's strong commitment to ensure that we have well maintained local highway infrastructure fit for the 21st century.

The purpose of the fund is to enable local highway authorities in England to bid for major maintenance projects that are otherwise difficult to fund through the usual formula needs elemental location they receive.
