New pot hole policy for county’s roads
A new way of dealing with pot holes on the county’s roads is coming into effect.
Suffolk County Council has announced it has a new policy for dealing with pot holes on the county’s highways.
Instead of making temporary repairs to damaged road surfaces, the council will now make a permanent repair to the pot hole.
The new policy is to try to do this within 48 hours of receiving a report on major roads and within five days on smaller roads.
The council will still aim for a one hour response time for pot holes deemed to be an emergency or a danger to the public.
Haverhill councillor, Tony Brown said: “There are pot hole in Hellions Park Avenue that need fixing.
“I’m hoping they are going to be repaired when they come to do Mill Road.
“I hope this makes the roads better and improves transport in our town.”
