Council’s potholes target

Posted onPosted on 10th Oct

NOTTINGHAMSHIRE County Council is on course to fill more than twice as many potholes this year than it did last year.

Nottinghamshire is the 11th largest county in the UK and the Council looks after a network of around 2,600 miles of road, spending more than £2.8m a year on carriageway repairs such as patching and filling in potholes.

Earlier this year the Council launched its new three-pronged approach to potholes and patching and that – combined with extra funding of £2.78m from the Government in recognition of that new approach – means that as many as 86,000 potholes will be repaired across the county by the end of next March.

During the last financial year (2013-14) the Council repaired 34,000 potholes.

Latest figures for this year so far (April to September) show that already some 24,980 repairs have been carried out.
