THE scale of the challenge to keep the region's roads in good condition has been revealed by South Gloucestershire Council’s StreetCare team.

They continually carry out road maintenance, resurfacing work and fix potholes and have been as busy as ever this year.

Since April they have resurfaced over 26 kilometres of road and 320 metres of pavement.

They have also fixed an average of 41 potholes every day.

Councillor Paul Hughes, cabinet member for communities and tourism, said: “We’ve made good progress addressing issues and making improvements on our local transport network.

"We are one of the best authorities in the region for maintaining roads and tackling potholes, and it is our aim to continue delivering this high standard for our residents.

“I would like to thank residents for bearing with us whilst we continue to make South Gloucestershire a great place to live and work.

"Sometimes we may have to work outside your home, or your commute to work may take a little longer than usual, and we apologise for the disruption, but we hope you will agree the result is worth it.”
