Thurrock: more than 3,000 potholes filled in four months
Thurrock Council’s highways lead has welcomed the progress made to improve the condition of roads in the area, revealing that more than 3,000 potholes have been filled since May 2017.
As part of the council’s ‘clean it, cut it, fill it’ initiative, engineers have been working across the borough, using various methods to fix thousands of defects which affect road residents.
One method, jet-patching – which fills potholes in a fraction of the time of regular pothole filling – has been completed for the summer, while regular pothole repairs continue.
Cllr Brian Little, portfolio holder for highways and transport, said:
“We know how important the condition of roads are to residents and we are working hard to repair potholes.
“Through ‘clean it, cut it, fill it’ and other initiatives, we are investing more than £2m this year alone on road upgrades and repairs.
“There’s still more work to do, but residents should see a real improvement in the roads across Thurrock.”
