A Glenrothes councillor has praised the efforts of the Council’s maintenance teams for repairing damaged road surfaces in and around the town.
Councillor Altany Craik, chairman of the Glenrothes area committee, took a closer look at one of the Council’s pothole busters when he went out with one of the maintenace teams on Monday.
Keeping Fife’s roads in good condition is no easy task, but the Council claims that with its three pothole busters it is making good progress.
The pothole busters can deliver high quality road repairs quickly and efficiently.
They are also multi-purpose and can be used during the winter months as gritters.
Bill Liddle, service manager (maintenance operations), said: “The pothole busters have been working across Fife since September and are a great success. Already, there are noticeable improvements to the road network.
“In mid-Fife area, we’ve patch repaired around 10,000 square metres.”
Cllr Craik said: “It’s great to see the difference the pothole buster is making in and around Glenrothes. I’m sure local people will also welcome the news that the council is working hard to make sure these problems are fixed as quickly as possible.”
To report a pothole, call the Pothole Busters on 0345 550011 or go to www.fifedirect.org.uk/roads.
The Council aims to repair potholes within five working days of being reported, and has a target to carry out emergency road repairs within 24 hours.
