Got any potholes on your roads?

Council blames the bad winter, thing is, they were just as bad before, and have been for years.

My god are you insinuating the council would tell porkies. Surely not.

When I first saw the picture, I thought it was showing the single carriageway A1 north of Alnwick!!!!

If they've been repaired like many of those near me, the 'repair' is a shovelful of tarmac and a firm treading - comes out in days. Do feel a bit sorry for the councils, though, as the task is enormous (would have been less if the roads had been in a good state before the severe frosts, however!).

That's a typical road in Kenya.

Where I live there are definitely more pot holes than ever, which is due to the winter weather. What do people expect of council’s? A quote from the article: “Potholes in need of urgent attention are being repaired within 24 hours of being identified or reported, regardless of their location, Kirklees Council said yesterday.” What more can they do? To me, there seems to be a dislike of local authorities so that it wouldn’t matter what they did, it wouldn’t be good enough.

Might help to slow traffic down a little. Or cause damage and accidents.

We've got some whoppers here (New Forest) that have appeared after the bad weather. Apparently Hampshire is the second worst of county after Surrey.

We have some in Sheffield so big the council has put temporary bridging over them.

Our council have to fill the potholes in before they can put speed bumps on the road, otherwise traffic isn't going fast enough to justify them.

I live just round the corner from the place mentioned in the article and can confirm that the roads are that bad. In fact the main Wakefield road is pretty bad as well as there is huge hole in quite a busy part of it.

We even had the BBC mention Sheffield and it hasn't got any better click here
