Extra staff have been brought in to help make sure the backlog is being tackled as quickly as possible, and improvements are being made to IT systems to improve efficiency and response times for customers.

Councillor Altany Craik, roads spokesperson, said: "We've specifically targeted an extra £6million to catch up on road repairs this year and we're continuing to make good progress.

“However we know that there's still a lot of work to do. Winter is approaching and these months can be challenging for the roads service.

“We'll continue to identify any issues as quickly as possible."!
