Recent snowfall spells trouble for UK road network

The latest news reports have been flooded with beautiful snow covered landscapes and images of families sledging and building snowmen, and then the snow arrived over the weekend a huge sigh of relief could be heard across the country, as we didn’t have to face the dreaded Monday morning commute in icy conditions.

However, when Monday morning arrived the disruption the snow brought was obvious. A number of flights were cancelled, hundreds of schools were closed and motorists were stuck for hours on some of the country’s busiest motorways.

Now the snow has started to melt, and our daily routine has returned to normal, we are beginning to see the damage the freezing temperatures have had on our road network.

The cold, and now wet weather, has further damaged an already vulnerable road network, posing a growing safety risk to the motorists who use it and with cuts to local council’s budgets a permanent solution to the UK’s pothole crisis has never been needed more.
