A scheme to reduce roadwork delays for motorists will stretch across three counties from March.

The roadwork permit scheme, devised by Surrey County Council and East Sussex County Council in 2013, gives local authorities the power to decide when utility companies dig up the roads.

Two councils in Berkshire - West Berkshire Council and Slough Borough Council - have also now joined up.

Councils will co-ordinate when work takes place, to reduce traffic jams.

The initiative, called the South East Permit Scheme, was approved in July 2013.
