The County Council website states that:
…..We are investing an additional £11 million into repairing as many potholes as possible. We are committed to delivering frontline services and putting our customers first, which is why we are making this significant commitment to improving our road network.
The work will take place throughout the summer and finish in May 2013. During the summer months we will be repairing the outstanding potholes and from November onwards we will be treating some of the road network to ensure that fewer potholes develop in the future….
….In order to fix as many potholes as possible, we will be using a process called Jet Patcher which is a high pressure patching system. This allows repairs to be carried out quickly and reduces disruption to traffic. However, this system is not suitable for all potholes, so sometimes we will need to return to a road to repair a pothole with more traditional methods.
This is good news. But it’s a monster task… just look at the list of roads they have listed for repair in Rochford District. It just goes on and on and on…
