|6,500 Potholes Repaired Throughout Borough|
As Council commits an extra £2m to repair programme
More than 6,500 potholes have been repaired across the borough in the course of a year as Wandsworth’s ongoing drive to improve its road network continues.
And, the efforts of the borough’s highways team have been boosted by a commitment from the council to commit an additional £2m to its footway and carriageway repair programme – meaning that £6.2m will be invested in the programme in 2013/2014.
In the 12 months ending January 31 this year a total of 6,561 potholes were repaired – equating to about 26 repairs per working day.
In addition to highway inspectors routinely checking the borough’s streets to check for possible issues, the council also responds to pothole problems reported by residents.

Residents should be aware that – while officers will always deal with reports – there will be a delay between recording repairs required to the actual time some repairs are carried out.
