Harrow puts in extra cash for potholes

LB Harrow has set aside a further £100,000 for pothole repair.

The council has currently filled nearly 3,000 out of the total number of 7,500 potholes initially identified earlier this year. It has an annual budget of £1m for highway repairs and has spent an added £250,000 of council funds and £113,000 from a national government pot to fix the large number of potholes caused by snow and ice in January.

To date the extra funds have been used to repair the deepest and most dangerous potholes but more work is needed on less serious defects.

Cllr Phillip O’Dell, Portfolio Holder for Environment and Community Reassurance on Harrow Council, said: “We know the state of our carriageways is a top priority for residents and that is why we propose injecting more funding into bringing them back up to standard. “
