The work will include road safety improvements of £125,000 for the A495 Meifod road and £63,000 for the B4560 Llangynidr Mountain Road.

Resurfacing totalling £862,000 will also take place on roads including the A495 at Llansantffraid-ym-Mechain.

The investment was approved by Powys council's cabinet and will be carried out over the next 12 months.

The council added it had secured £770,000 from the Welsh Government.
