Trusted Dealers urges motorists to back National Pothole DayBack

NationalPotholeDayMotorists across the country are being urged to back National Pothole Day, held on Thursday 15th January 2015.

National Pothole Day is the first of its kind ever and it is hoped that car drivers across Britain will lend their full support to the growing problem on UK roads.

Organised by Streetrepairs.co.uk and backed by Tyregiant.com, tomorrow’s campaign has been put together to “harness the frustrations of the UK’s motorists who have long complained about how unpleasant, disruptive and damaging the unsightly craters are.”

The campaign asks motorists to submit photos of damage caused by potholes and pictures of roads in need of repair via social media sites including Twitter and Facebook.

PotHole1Tyregiant.com managing director, Philip Hankinson, said: “Tyregiant.com has already used social media to show our support to the campaign and will do everything we can to support UK motorists as they’re a sector who we naturally have a close relationship with and do deserve to be heard a lot more readily than they are.”

Neil Addley, managing director of Trusted Dealers said: “Recent freedom of information requests have revealed the pot hole situation is worse than had been previously reported and in some cases, councils would be better replacing a whole road surface rather than creating a patch work quilt of pot holes that are bound to recur.”

In December 2014, the money English councils will get to tackle potholes over the next 6 years was revealed by the Department for Transport. Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin said it was enough to fix around 18 million potholes across the country, but the Local Government Association has warned there is “a very long way to go”.

The funding is designed to help local authorities tackle potholes and improve local roads between 2015 and 2021. Mr McLoughlin said: “This huge investment is part of our long term economic plan to ensure we have a transport network fit for the 21st century.”
