It strikes me as strange when I walk about with Phil and Dave that we can come across two pot holes side by side where only ‘one’ is marked up for repair.
I have asked the Highways Dept why this happens, only to be told that one is not wide or deep enough to be repaired … yet
I would assume that the majority of the cost to repair a pot hole is the labour in man hours, the cost of moving the equipment, blocking off the roads with traffic measures etc and not the cost of a teacup full of bitumen.
So does it not make sense to repair a square patch, or the whole junction, instead of returning to the same place over and over again like blocking the holes of a colander one at a time…..
…………. or is it just me? !!!
