WC gets money to fill potholes

February 15, 2021 8:09 PM

Or to be pedantic, money to buy materials and labour to fill potholes. Here's the WC announcement:

Wiltshire Council has been awarded £22,924,000 from the Government's Highways Maintenance Fund for 2021/22 to pay for a range of highways maintenance and improvement programmes, including resurfacing, re-signing, new road markings, traffic signals and filling potholes.

This total includes the award of £9m from the Government's Pothole Fund, which will also be used for all aspects of highways maintenance throughout the coming financial year.

WC filled over 20% more potholes in Wiltshire in 2020 compared to 2019, as reduced traffic levels often made it easier to complete repairs.

People can report highways defects and potholes by downloading the MyWilts smartphone app or at www.wiltshire.gov.uk/mywilts-online-reporting
