Up to £250,000 could be spent on repairing potholes in and around the Southend area the council have agreed. That is equivalent to approx 4,700 potholes accross the borough although some of the money will be used to repair and re paint some roads.
Councillor Andrew Moring, was quoted as saying: “The quality of our highways is something that rightly comes under scrutiny by our residents and it is important that we do all we can to continue to bring our roads and pavements up to the standard expected.
“I am pleased this extra money is available due to the diligent budgeting of our officers and I am even more pleased that we are able to use it to further improve the highways in our borough.”
The £250,000 is on top of the already announced £800,000 in the 2019/20 budget that will fund repairs and resurfacing.
