Pothole Problem

Yesterday I was driving happily along in the Spring sunshine. It was a really beautiful day in the Ribble Valley and I decided to have a drive in the countryside, followed by a spot of lunch at a local Gastro Pub! The perfect Sunday in my book. Carefully ensuring that I kept to the speed limit at all costs, I suddenly felt the Saab Swansea car drop into a very deep pothole. Twice. Thankfully there seems to be no lasting damage to my car but how can the council let the roads get into such a state in the first place. Let’s investigate.

Of course the problem, as always, comes down to money. Local authorities have admitted that they are not in a position to mend roads and this has consequently left five per cent of the country’s road in major need of repair at a total bill of approximately 10 billion pounds.Of course the problem, as always, comes down to money.

So how have the roads got into such a mess in the first place? The problem is largely to do with the sheer volume of traffic which is  on the roads. Furthermore, the very cold Winter of 2011 caused more strain on the road and the problem progressed.

Due to the financial situation, governments are currently carrying out patch up work on the roads instead of doing a proper repair.  Money is needed to make the repairs and indeed to make the roads safer for the users. The transport minister has stated that funds have been supplied for the repair of roads but patience was needed as the problem could not be fixed overnight.Due to the financial situation, governments are currently carrying out patch up work on the roads instead of doing a proper repair.  Money is needed to make the repairs and indeed to make the roads safer for the users.
