Winter has come…but we knew everything
This year we were fully prepared for the extreme weather that headed our way and we want you to know that we’re still committed to fixing the county’s potholes.
Between April and December last year crews fixed 34,262 potholes and they’ve not stopped there.
We suspected what Mother Nature was going to throw at us this winter, and we were prepared. This year alone we will be spending almost £20 million on improving, prepping and maintaining our road's surfaces.
We know how important our roads are to you, because we care about them just as much. That's why we've been hard at work treating more than 81km of them.
Our highways have been fully pampered, so far we have sealed and repaired surfaces and improved skid resistance and grip. I think it's fair to say that they felt very fancy before the winter came along, and now they need another spruce.
We’re dedicated to keeping Gloucestershire moving and this means being on top of the road surfaces. On a regular basis our crews are out and about throughout the whole of the county inspecting the road conditions and fixing faults.
However, you can keep us up to date as well. If you see any potholes please report them via this webpage: www.gloucestershire.gov.uk/reportit or call 08000 514 514. Urgent potholes will be temporary fixed within 24 hours, whilst less severe ones will be repaired within 28 days.
Just because winter is coming to an end, our commitment isn’t. As part of the county council’s budget proposals for 2018/19 a £39 million investment will go into roads over the next four years, which forms part of the council’s £150m investment in highways.
