In March 2018 the Department for Transport made additional grant allocations to highway authorities specifically to tackle potholes following the severe winter of 2017/18.
In the financial year 2018/19 Warwickshire County Council received £1,415,650 from the Severe Weather pothole fund and an additional £726,000 from the pothole fund. This funding totalled an additional £2,141,650 and has been spent in the following ways:
approximately 8,188 potholes have been attended to and permanently repaired on the first visit.
approximately 13,900m2 of structural patching has been carried out over 25 sites. These sites are in addition to those carried out in 2018/19.
approximately 21,300m2 of carriageway has been completely relaid across 10 sites. This has completely renewed certain carriageways where there were significant structural defects.
