Case Study

Pothole Repairs Kingsbridge

Kingsbridge Parish Council received funding for materials and equipment to fill non-intervention potholes under the Road Warden Scheme

The funding has helped with the ongoing filling of Highways potholes within the Parish boundary of Kingsbridge. This is following liaison with the local Highway Officer for the area. Under the Road Warden Scheme. The Town Council is allowed to fill potholes at the maximum dimensions 300mm wide x 40mm in depth.

As well as materials the funding has helped with training of the Kingsbridge Town Councils grounds maintaince contractor.

With more potholes being filled it has made the roads safer around the Parish. It has also helped with trip hazards for pedestrians. There is hope that the work undertaken will help encourage neighbouring Parishes action potholes.
