Pot Holes!

We have received the following statement from Derbyshire County Council via our Parish Council.

We recognise how important the condition of the roads in Derbyshire are to Derbyshire residents and the difficulties they are currently facing. However Derbyshire County Council is doing its utmost to complete the necessary repairs in a timely manner, and below is an update on the steps we are currently taking to alleviate what we consider to be a very challenging situation.

In the first week of March whilst the adverse weather was preventing us from getting on the roads we were only able to repair just over 323 pothole in that week.
Last week following the roll out of the approved investment and delivery plan on a four day week (due to back holiday) we completed just in excess of 1,000 pothole repairs.
We currently have just over 70 operatives out on the network repairing potholes.
We currently have 9 hotbox gangs in operation, working extended hours and weekends. As of Monday we will increase this number to 12.
All hotbox gangs have a mandate to find and fix.
We have patching gangs in all three areas of the county undertaking large sections of patching repairs.
We have two Jetpatchers focusing on Derbyshire rural network.

We will continue to endeavour to complete the necessary repairs.
