09 Oct Over 250 miles of Essex roads have been improved this summer
Over 250 miles of Essex roads have been improved this summer with surface dressing techniques which prevent potholes forming.
Councillor Kevin Bentley, Deputy Leader, Essex County Council and Cabinet Member for Infrastructure, welcomed the works saying: “With this work, other surfacing techniques and regular pothole-fixing crews, the number of potholes on our main roads has come down from 988 in June to 407.”
He added “That’s a major improvement for the safety and comfort of drivers and riders on our faster roads where most of the traffic is.”
Surface dressing techniques future proof the road surface to prevent potholes forming but can only be done in warm, dry weather.
