North Lincolnshire council moves to ‘permanent road repairs’ after fixing 3,000 potholes

There will still be a team looking after emergency pothole repairs.

North Lincolnshire Council will be carrying out a programme of what it describes as more permanent repairs on larger stretches of road after it was called out to fix around 3,000 potholes in five weeks.

From today (Monday 16 April), highways teams will be concentrating on permanent repairs on the following roads:

  • Bottesford (various streets)
  • Barton
  • Barrow
  • Goxhill
  • North and South Killingholme

The council has said dedicated reactive teams will still be deployed to emergency pothole repairs.

North Lincolnshire Council repaired more 2,856 potholes in the last five weeks.

Councillor Rob Waltham, leader of North Lincolnshire Council, said: “I want to thank residents for reporting potholes and would encourage people to continue reporting them as it helps identify where they are and enables us to prioritise a programme of work for the week ahead.

“We have repaired almost 3,000 potholes now and are now concentrating on carrying out more permanent repairs.

“We will still be responding to urgent repairs and I would encourage people to continue to report potholes they come across, as this is really helpful to us.

“I think the vast majority of people understand that we are doing everything we can and I’d like to thank them for bearing with us while we carry out the repairs.”
