Lincolnshire County Council is gearing up for the latest round in its battle against potholes.
The council is currently finalising its pothole patching programme for 2017/18, with the initial locations set to be tackled in April in Holbeach and Grantham. Each pothole along these roads will be permanently repaired at an estimated cost of around £250,000.
This is just the first stage of a £5m year-long programme, which will eliminate the worst potholes across the county and prepare some roads for future surface dressing. Each job will require a temporary road closure, with appropriate traffic management measures put in place for the duration.
Executive member for highways Richard Davies (Con) said: “Our patching team will be out dealing with potholes five days a week. Last year we repaired more than 100,000 potholes countywide – a figure I’m looking to match this year.”
