Does Ayrshire County Council really does fill its potholes with Cocopops? https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=4504948646218957 If so, it’s no more of a joke than Robert Courts’ front page news in this week’s Witney Gazette. Thanks to the Passionate One’s attention to the pothole problem in West Oxfordshire, it is just about solved. Our MP was supposed to be meeting Mr Pothole, but Mr Pothole failed to show.
Potholes can be repaired temporarily or permanently. The immediate cost of the latter is great, but the total cost of temporary repairs is very much greater. Guess which one finds favour when the road maintenance budget has been slashed.
