The Most Repaired Pothole road In East Lancashire In 2020

8th Jan 2021

According to statistics released under a Freedom Of Information Act request to Lancashire County council. Burnley Road in Rawtenstall is the most repaired road in East Lancashire

The Freedom of Information Act request from the Lancashire Telegraph revealed that the 4.7km stretch of road has had a total of 105 pothole repairs in 2020, and records show the same road underwent 92 repairs during 2019.

In the 12 months between November 2019 and the end of October 2020, the county council spent £4 million repairing 18,885 potholes in the Burnley, Hyndburn, Pendle, Rossendale and Ribble Valley regions, which had increased from 13,116 repairs in the previous year.

Councillor David Foxcroft, representing the Mid-Rossendale ward, said: The road is particularly bad on the area from the cemetery to the Tup Bridge crossroads and I am trying to get this area on next years resurfacing programme.

I know that the rest of the road has seen some resurfacing and others have been patched up then resurfaced especially around the Goodshaw area.”

Meanwhile, Lancashire County Council is inviting residents to give feedback on their highways service via an online survey.

County Councillor Keith Iddon, the cabinet member for highways and transport, said that the county’s highways teams had worked incredibly hard during the COVID-19 crisis, especially dealing with the extra damage to the roads caused by the stormy weather earlier in 2020.

We have been supplementing our techniques to fix potholes with new, innovative methods such as mechanical patching, heated repairs and jet patching. This has helped us to increase the efficiency of our service and fix even more potholes this year,” he said.

Poor State Of Local Roads Revealed As Top Concern For Motorists

Poor State Of Local Roads Revealed As Top Concern For Motorists

16th Dec 2020

A new report has revealed that the poor state of local roads is the top worry for drivers around the UK, ahead of other issues such as bad driving on the part of other motorists, drivers using handheld phones and the aggressive behaviour of others on the road.

The RAC’s annual Report on Motoring found that the condition of local roads was the biggest concern for drivers, despite the big drop seen in car use at the start of the coronavirus crisis.

The research also highlighted a rise in the number of those who say the roads in their local areas have deteriorated, with 52 per cent saying that conditions are worse now than they were a year ago.

People in rural areas are more likely to say that local roads have worsened, as are older motorists. Those living in London and other cities believe their local roads are better in 2020 than they were in 2019, however.

Nicholas Lyes, RAC head of roads policy, commented on the findings, saying: “These findings are a big concern given that last year’s relatively mild winter should not, in normal circumstances, have led to a further decline in road surface quality.

“Usually, RAC patrols see the fewest number of pothole-related breakdowns in the third quarter which coincides with the summer, with volumes having dropped steadily from the high point recorded in the first three months of the year.”

He explained that, because of the pandemic, councils may not have been able to maintain their repair work, which has led to local roads suffering as a consequence.

Potholes and poor roads can cause serious damage to vehicles, affecting the tyres, wheels and steering alignment, making it more dangerous to drive. If you need Yorkshire tarmac contractors at the moment, get in touch with Sangwin today to see how we can help.
