In April 2011 a review of potholes was announced by the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Transport under the Highways Maintenance Efficiency Programme.
This progress report summarises initial findings from that pothole review and outlines how potholes could be dealt with, including:
- providing improved guidance to local authorities on prioritising roads
- adopting a whole-life approach to road maintenance
- using the right technology and materials
The final report on repairing and preventing potholes was published in April 2012.
