POTHOLES: What’s the criteria?

The pothole repairs process needs to improve.
The pothole repairs process needs to improve.

Do any of your readers know what North Tyneside Council’s criteria is for filling potholes in our roads?

A survey was carried out along North Road, Wallsend, recently and the surveyor would only say that those marked with the white circle around would be the only ones to be repaired.

Adjacent to many of the circled ones are many that are almost as deep and will not be repaired and will only deteriorate further with the regular traffic along this road.

This is surely false economy as the deterioration will continue until the frosts start again.
