Seen a pot-hole? Road users are being urged to report some of the larger ones as road inspectors assess the damage after the December freeze-up.

Norfolk County Council's 10 highways inspectors are building a picture of the toll of damage caused by the elements, including the loss of chippings from recently-treated surfaces, and want to hear about any in the Great Yarmouth area.

Adrian Gunson, pictured below, council cabinet member for planning and transportation, said: “We have had more than 50 road-workers concentrating on pot-hole repairs across the county. Some have been taken off other duties to make sure the worst of the pot-holes are repaired as quickly as possible.

“It is particularly important that people tell us about any deep pot-holes that could be a real hazard to road users, especially cyclists and motorcyclists and pedestrians.

“For anything that is deeper than about 75mm - almost three inches - we would like people to call the council on 0344 800 809. That way we can take action immediately, and usually that means making a temporary repair within a day.

“We would prefer less urgent problems to be reported via our website, so that repairs can be scheduled for a later date when repair gangs are in the area.
