Case Study

Lustleigh – Grant for PPE to help with pothole repairs

Pothole filling trials

This new PPE will be worn by the volunteers undertaking duties as part of the Road Warden Scheme (RWS). The PPE includes; Hi-Viz traffic coat and Hi-Viz bomber jacket.

Under the RWS the Parish are repairing numerous potholes.

Having the PPE means that the volunteers undertaking the works are safer while out on the road.
