Ten road patching and pothole repair teams are now working across Cambridgeshire to fix the county’s roads.

The county council has identified an extra £90m of funding for highway maintenance over the next five years and the teams will concentrate their efforts on fixing the areas of minor damage patching and filling potholes.

Since the beginning of January, nearly 1,500 potholes have been reported to the County Council and the crews have already dealt with more than 1,200 areas of damage

More extensive areas of repair work or road resurfacing projects will be carried out by other teams working for the County Council across Cambridgeshire.

County Council Cabinet Member for Community Infrastructure, Councillor Tony Orgee, said: “The Council has committed substantial extra financial resources to highway maintenance including pothole repairs.

“By creating 10 repair teams dedicated full-time to fixing potholes and minor damage to the roads we hope to carry out any emergency or routine repairs as quickly as possible.”
