Address potholes on Hampshire HighwaysHampshire Highways’ extra teams of Pothole Busters are out across the county tackling the worst of the damage caused to the roads by the recent severe cold snaps.
Councillor Roy Perry, Leader of Hampshire County, explained: “Safety comes first – which is why we have extra gangs out on the ground, as soon as possible after the snow and cold weather, to start tackling potholes on our roads.
“Hampshire Highways gangs are using pre-prepared material, which doesn’t need any mixing on site, and is specially designed to work in cold and damp conditions. This means the gangs can fix more potholes each day than by conventional methods."
Hampshire Highways looks after over 5,500 miles of road. Motorways and major trunk roads are the responsibility of Highways England.
Hampshire residents are encouraged to report potholes and road defects direct to the County Council at: www.hants.gov.uk/transport/roadmaintenan
Reporting defects via a third party means it takes longer for reports to be addressed.
