ALMOST £4.5m could be spent on repairs to uneven and broken pavements around Kirklees over the next three years.
Last year saw a £1.5m scheme to repair pavements after a big rise in compensation claims - running at more than £1m a year - by people who had tripped and fallen.
Cash was allocated to those areas with the highest accident rates.
Next year, a further £1.49m is to be spent on making pavements safer, with the potential of an extra £3m up to 2007.
It is hoped such spending will reduce injury claims and improve the look of the district in suburban and residential areas.
The plan within this financial year is to divide £65,000 among all 23 wards.
That plan was due to be discussed at today's meeting of the council's joint Cabinet committees looking at regeneration.
Highways officers will then decide with councillors where spending would be most effective.
