Council Pledge More Resources to Fix Potholes

Ten teams of highways staff from are carrying out repairs to the road network across the area following the big freeze.

From Monday, this will increase to 14 teams as the council responds to reports of damage to the East Riding’s 3,500km (2,100 miles) of roads.

Councillor , portfolio holder for highways and emergency planning, said: “December’s weather was among the most severe on record and it has taken a toll on our roads. We are allocating additional resources in responding to the damage.

“Our highways engineers are continually inspecting the network and updating our schedule of repairs and including those reports from members of the public.

“To repair the entire network is likely to take some time, even if the severe weather doesn’t return and cause further damage and hamper the repair work.”
