COUNCIL officials say they are working to repair pot holes on the county’s roads - but have told residents that more dangerous ones will be dealt with first.

It comes after Kirkby resident Steve Winfield raised concerns about the number of pot holes on the Coxmoor estate.

He said: “In general people are just moaning about them but nothing is being done.”

He says one pot hole was around five inches deep until it was filled in by Nottinghamshire County Council - but added that others remain.

Coun Richard Jackson said: “We carry out regular inspections that identify where pot holes have developed as well as receiving reports from the public.

“On occasions some potholes need urgent repairs so road users are not put in danger. In these cases we aim to carry out works immediately to make the road safe and then to complete any repairs within 24 hours.

“Other potholes where road users are not being endangered but where repairs are needed to prevent further damage are programmed in as part of our maintenance operations.”
