Ending Pothole Repairs

The County Council has finally realised that its road maintenance plan is no longer working. In the last five years a mind boggling 476,043 potholes have been filled in Nottinghamshire. No wonder that our county has been declared the pothole capital of the UK.

The Plan promises to "level up" the response to rural crime.
