Potholes

29 May 2018 - 4 Jun 2018, 9:00 - 9:00

Thank you for sharing your comments on potholes on your local roads with Yasmin Qureshi MP.

The Facebook discussion card ran from 29 May - 4 June 2018.

Speaking in the debate, Yasmin Qureshi said:

"Local authorities have paid more than £70 million in pothole compensation since 2013. That amounts to unnecessary wastage of more than 25% of the £250 million the Government announced in its 2013 pothole action fund. Collectively, the AA calculates that potholes are costing drivers and insurers £1 million every month. That situation is not normal or acceptable. It is a result of a perverse funding system, as was highlighted by a respondent to the House of Commons Facebook page. Discussing today’s debate, Rob commented:

“England’s roads are just one big pothole; the councils have neglected them through lack of cash”.
