THE number of potholes in Harlow continues to rise, according to figures published by Essex County Council.

In Sept 2013, there were 573 outstanding holes. In September 2014, that figure had risen to 693.

With it only being autumn, there are fears that another hard winter could see the number of holes increase greatly

Cabinet Member for Highways and Transportation, County Councillor Rodney L Bass, said: “By doubling the number of crews fixing our main roads to 36 we have seen some dramatic results. Those crews have been moving over to tackle the local rural roads for several weeks to start bringing down the number of potholes and defects on those roads as well.

By solving this problem strategically we are improving our roads and increasing safety across the county.”
