News from Wiltshire Council 21 May

"Pothole reports 

When we receive a pothole report, it is assessed by an engineer, and given a priority based on our defect criteria, as set out in our Highways Safety Inspection Manual.

Not all reported potholes meet our defect criteria, and so not all reported potholes are repaired. Some reported potholes will be repaired at a later date, but not immediately as they are of lower priority. We aim to fix Priority 1 potholes by the end of the next day, while Priority 2 will be fixed within 14 days, Priority 3 in 28 days, Priority 4 in 60 days, and Priority 5 are referred to a manager for further consideration."
