Wandsworth's Council's anti-pothole campaign passes 3,000
Wandsworth Council's campaign to solve the borough's pothole problem has passed another milestone after the 3,000th road defect was filled.
The council’s pothole crews have been hard at work since the beginning of May carrying out repairs – with the ultimate aim of tackling pothole and pavement defects in every ward.
In total, the teams repaired a total of 942 potholes in Queenstown, 532 in Northcote and 180 in Shaftesbury.
So far 3,220 repairs have been carried out as part of the borough-wide improvement project.
The country has seen some of the worst winters over the past four years causing huge damage by weakening the road surface and creating many more potholes.
A further three crews will spend August carrying out repair work in Roehampton, Southfields and Tooting - they ahve already carried out repairs in Balham, Fairfield, Thamesfield, Earlsfield, Nightingale, West Hill, Bedford and Latchmere.
As part of the repair campaign, many roads will be completely resurfaced and some roads will have their pavements completely re-laid.
Wandsworth is responsible for 1,500 roads stretching over 360km with 746km of pavements, many of which were constructed more than 100 years ago.
