Hundreds of potholes are being repaired as part of a two week blitz in Plymouth.
Eight teams of workers are out across the city dealing with the backlog of repairs residents reported over the winter. Plymouth City Council has pledged to spend twenty million pounds over the next ten years bringing the network up to scratch.
Plymouth City Council made the announcement about potholes repair work at its budget meeting on Monday (25 February) night. The money will be spent over the next decade. It also announced total budget cuts for the year of £18 million. Council tax will rise by 2%.
A woman living in Southway in Plymouth says a street near her has a plague of potholes. Nancy Diston got in touch about Pendeen Crescent after an appeal on ITV News West Country. The problem is particularly bad in the region because of the winter weather.
There are more than five potholes for every mile of road in the region, according to an AA survey. That's around 65,000 across Devon, Cornwall and Somerset. They've been caused by the flooding and recent cold weather.
