Pothole repair performance dips on some routes

The biggest single project approved by cabinet members is the resurfacing of Leyland Lane in South Ribble, which will cost £428,000.

Highways officers have identified 14 A, B or C-classification routes which will be resurfaced and 44 which will receive so-called ‘surface dressing’ to ward off future deterioration. Dozens of unclassified roads will also receive attention.

Cabinet member for highways at the Conservative-run authority, Keith Iddon, admitted that the list was “not going to please everybody”. But the meeting heard that the schemes had been drawn up on the basis of the biggest priorities facing the network.

The budget includes the cost of reacting to problems as they develop and papers presented to the cabinet meeting confirm that the council will continue to use the jet spray patching method of pothole repair which it introduced last year.

The total funding pot includes £14m from the government’s highways maintenance incentive fund which recognises efficient use of previous allocations of cash. A separate £12m fund has been reserved for transport capital projects, including road and cycling safety schemes which will each receive £500,000.

Labour opposition leader Azhar Ali raised concern that the current system for identifying when potholes should be filled was not appropriate for the particular problem facing cobbled streets in parts of East Lancashire.

“The tramac is falling away and the highways department says it is doesn’t meet the intervention level [of the pothole being at least 40mm deep]. But it never will, because there was only about 5mm of tar put on it in the first place,” he said.

County Coun Iddon said he would try to address the issue, but County Coun Driver added that officers should be left to “identify the priorities”.
