Pothole repair programme hits the road
Date published: 11 July 2018
The council will be targeting 955 streets in the pothole repair programme
More than 950 streets in the borough, over 48 miles of road, are to be repaired as a programme to fill potholes gets underway.
A list of roads drawn up using condition and accident data was approved by councillors across the four townships. Some £2m of the £12m fund will be spent on footpaths.
The work will be carried out in addition to the standard annual repair programme, which will see repairs across almost 15 miles of road.
Councillor Allen Brett, leader of Rochdale Borough Council, said: “The state of the roads is a serious concern for many of our residents and something they have to deal with every day.
"This huge additional investment will allow us to carry out a series of repairs, from fixing potholes to full scale resurfacing and other long-term repairs, on 955 roads, to get them in good condition for years to come.”
