Glasgow pothole problems reduced significantly

Posted in: Pothole Injuries Road Traffic Accidents 

A recent report by Glasgow City Council has found that the number of complaints made by the public concerning potholes is currently the lowest it has been in years. Over the last year alone, Glasgow City Council has injected a total of £5.3m into pothole repairs, with the number of compensation claims falling by 36%. Claims involved personal injury claims and compensation for damaged vehicles, both of which have seen a major decrease since road repairs.

The council completed over 15,000 permanent pothole repairs, which is the greatest number ever managed by the council in a 12-month period. Over the last three years, the local authority has invested a total of £45m in a bid to improve the condition of all the city’s roads. 

‘Equivalent to distance between Glasgow and Madrid’

Glasgow City Council is responsible for around 1100 miles of road, a length equivalent to the distance between Glasgow and Madrid. So far the council has already resurfaced 250 miles of carriageway, due to investment provided over the last four years, as well as 86 miles of road resurfaced in this financial year. The council’s land and environment spokesman Alistair Watson said:

“Deterioration of the road network is an issue nationally … However, Glasgow City Council, through our prudent management of the resources made available, is bucking the Scotland-wide trend of deterioration.”
