County Councillor Keith Iddon, cabinet member for highways and transport, said: “2020 has been a challenging year for us all, but our highways team has been working incredibly hard throughout to improve our roads, as well as helping with the Covid-19 effort.
“Reflecting on what has been a difficult year for everyone due to the pandemic, our teams have achieved a great deal, particularly in dealing with the extra damage on the roads caused by wet, stormy weather earlier in the year.

“We have been supplementing our existing techniques to fix potholes with new, innovative methods such as mechanical patching, heated repairs and jet patching. This has helped us to increase the efficiency of our service and fix even more potholes this year.
“We have also been striving to reduce our carbon footprint across our work, including changing to LED street lighting and recycling material that would once have gone to waste while improving road surfaces.
“I’d like to thank the team for working so hard this year in continuing to deliver an excellent service to our residents, despite these extra pressures. We are always keen to get feedback on our service to improve even further, so if you haven’t done so yet, please complete our online highways survey before the end of February and let us know what you think.”
