Hertfordshire pothole responses getting worse
« on: June 13, 2013, 01:47:58 pm »
The report focuses on Stevenage but gives figures for the county.

Quote
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.

The potholes are an increased danger for cyclists, It is getting to the state on certain roads, such as Moffatts Lane, to cycle well away from the kerb to allow space to avoid potholes whilst being overtaken by motorists.
So, motorists, please be patient, a bike hitting one of the deep potholes will almost certainly seat the rider.

I've invited Herts CC and Herts Highways to respond via Twitter.
