UltraCrete supports National Pothole Day 2021

UltraCrete and passionate campaigner Mark Morrell, otherwise known as Mr Pothole, will once again join forces on National Pothole Day to raise awareness of the state of the nation’s roads and the need for additional funding from central government to tackle the growing pothole crisis.

Established in 2015 by StreetRepairs.co.uk, National Pothole Day was created to provide a place for road users to report road damage to their local council. Over the last 5 years, this movement has gained in momentum and is now a key platform for road safety awareness and education.

As a result of the publicity surrounding National Pothole Day 2020, when a bright orange tank drove through London, UltraCrete and Mr Pothole helped to secure an additional £2.5bn of funding from central government to fix potholes and resurface roads.

Building on that success, in 2021 National Pothole Day will  take the pothole crisis to the people by giving them the opportunity to express their opinions on the state of UK roads by completing the National Pothole Day 2021 road user survey.

National Pothole Day has surveyed over a thousand road users, including motorists, cyclists and motorcyclists, to understand how potholes impact the everyday road user and to truly understand what changes need to be made to make a real difference to the nation’s crumbling road network.

The campaign also extends to questioning local authorities and highway contractor firms up and down the country on their opinion on the pothole crisis, the use of quality and approved repair materials and, ultimately, how to generate much needed further funding from central government. The results of each survey will be shared in January 2021.

With over 40 years of experience of working alongside local authorities and highway contractors to develop a suite of first time permanent road repair materials, UltraCrete have plenty of expertise to ideally place  them as sponsor and champion of National Pothole Day 2021.

National Pothole Day will take place on 15th January 2021. Be the first to find out the results of their survey by following #NoMorePotholesUK on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram.

UltraCrete will also host a Pothole Awareness Day on 8th January 2021. To take part in the Awareness Day, or for further information on this exciting event, please email lynnef@instarmac.co.uk.
