Potholes set to be repaired


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.”
