Dangerous potholes in Hertfordshire are not being repaired as quickly as they should be, a Freedom of Information request has revealed.
The Comet report:
LESS than half of “urgent” potholes reported in a town this year were dealt with within 24 hours.
Although 187 potholes requiring urgent action were reported in Stevenage between January 1 and May 19 this year, only 91 were repaired within 24 hours – the time in which Herts County Council recommends they should be dealt with on its website.
Just under two-thirds of the same type of potholes were repaired in North Herts, and 59 per cent countywide.
