Driving at Christmas? Don’t let potholes ruin your journey!

Last year 14 million cars travelled at least 20 miles on the last Friday before Christmas. With potholes responsible for as many as 1 in 10 mechanical failures on UK roads and local authorities currently paying out more than £30 million in compensation claims, pothole repair is increasingly on the agenda.

Local authorities are keen to keep the road network moving over Christmas so are being encouraged to keep stocks of pothole repair materials such as Permanent Pothole Repair and 6mm Instant Road Repair from UltraCrete so that repair work can be carried out swiftly to prevent delays to commuters over the festive period.
