The AA has reported that its 1,000 ‘streetwatchers’ have inspected roads across the country with the South-West the only area where there were more repaired potholes than new ones
Overall, they found that the average pothole count per streetwatcher was 14.9 potholes compared to 12.5 a year ago, suggesting the UK’s roads have deteriorated further.
Edmund King, president of the AA, says: “The streetwatch volunteers have once again shown that the UK has a pothole plague, which has not gone away despite extra repairs this year. Highway authorities need to get to grips with the pothole problem.”
Overall, the North-East and Scotland had most potholes per head, averaging 19 and 20.1 respectively.
