Heart Breakfast with Jamie Theakston and Zoe Hardman 6:30am - 10am
Gloucestershire County Council has now repaired almost 18,500 potholes since the start of Operation Road Rescue.
Last week, 2,995 potholes were filled by teams from Gloucestershire Highways.
Since January 25th, the teams have been out around the county repairing potholes, patching and resurfacing roads that were badly damaged during the freezing weather.
Heart's Kate Justice went out with the team to find out what's involved.
The council has doing two types of work:
* Patching: In some locations road surfaces have been severely damaged with dozens of potholes caused by the severe weather. Our safety inspection and area teams are prioritising areas where we will be carrying out larger patching works to repair these potholes.
* Resurfacing: We’re also in the process of re-prioritising our current resurfacing programme to take into account the damage that has happened due to the recent ice and snow. There is obviously a limited pot of money for major schemes like these so it isn’t possible to resurface every single road in the county.
