£3 million to repair extra potholes in Gloucestershire
At last – there is some good news for users of Cheltenham's pothole-ridden roads.
Gloucestershire County Council has announced it will send out extra teams over the next six months to repair a 15,000 potholes on top of its usual road repairs.
It comes after the authority announced it would pump an additional £3 million into tackling the problem, which has got worse and worse in recent months due to sub-zero weather conditions.
Councillor Will Windsor-Clive, cabinet member for communities, said: "The combination of wet and cold weather this winter has left some of the county's roads in a very poor state and as a county council we have looked to ensure that all these problem potholes are treated as quickly and effectively as possible.
