An additional £540,000 is being committed by West Sussex County Council to the battle against potholes

An additional £540,000 is being committed by West Sussex County Council to the battle against potholes – that’s enough funding for at least 2,000 extra, larger-scale, high-quality repairs.

The council has already completed 11,000 pothole repairs to date this year and this funding boost is in addition to extra resources announced in May. This was when two roving “seek and fill” gangs and one dedicated to patching larger areas were added to the 15 teams already repairing potholes.

Bob Lanzer, County Council Cabinet Member for Highways and Infrastructure, said: “The extra £540,000 is great news and further proof of just how seriously we take the pothole problem in West Sussex and that we have listened to residents and how important they feel this issue is.
