Race to deal with Norfolk pot holes

MOTORISTS could face a series of delays as council chiefs race against time to carry out an intensive programme of pot hole repairs totalling nearly �7m on 30 roads across Norfolk.

The government allocated �6.9m for winter damage repairs to county roads in Norfolk.

But ministers have insisted that the cash must be spent by the end of September and that means that the roadworks could be set to start straight away to get the repairs carried out in time.

The cold weather once again caused huge problems to the county’s road network and, since the grant announcement on March 24, the county council has been working with its Norfolk strategic partnership partners, May Gurney and Mott MacDonald, to build a programme to make use of the grant.
