Is your street set for pothole works?
PUBLISHED: 11:00 03 November 2017
Most of the work will be patching, but resurfacing will also be carried out.
Pothole-ridden road in Honiton, Axminster and Seaton have been earmarked for repairs under a £3million scheme.
Devon County Council has announced that a number of roads in the three towns will get repaired after the funds were allocated by central government.
Poltimore Road and Gatcombe Lane in Honiton, Cotley Wash and Brinscombe Lane in Axminster, and Sea Hill and Marlpit Lane in Seaton have all been included in the works, which are costing the council more than £60,000.
The council says most of the work will be patching, but resurfacing will also be carried out. The funding allocation has been determined using pothole frequency data.
Councillor Stuart Hughes, Devon County Council cabinet member for highway management, said: “This investment of more than £3million is being spent on roads that need it the most and are local priorities, and we’re making sure that the money goes as far as possible.
“With the biggest road network of any local authority in the country it’s impossible to repair every road in Devon that needs attention but we’re making the best use of the money we’ve been given by government.”
The Pothole Action Fund repair schemes have to be completed before April.
The following roads are also set for works but don’t appear on the map:
