Pothole Repair Methods: What Are Your Options?

Pothole appearances are very common during the winter months and are caused by water infiltrating the cracks within a surface and later freezing over – this causes the surface to expand. As heavy cars or lorries pass over these surfaces, it causes the material to weaken, causing the pothole to become larger and more troublesome over time. It has been reported over the last year that around 1.7 million potholes were filled – the equivalent to one every 19 seconds.

As you may be aware, potholes on the road can be a huge danger to cars, vehicles, and cyclists. Statistics show that more than 250 cyclists were killed or seriously injured in crashes caused by potholes between 2014 and 2019.
