A pothole is a hollow in the road where the surface of the road has broken up. We are responsible for maintaining and repairing the roads in North Lincolnshire.

How quickly we repair a pot hole depends on the risk it poses to road users. This can be difficult as all pot holes present some risk, but the main factors considered are:

  • Size and depth of the pothole 
  • Type of traffic using the road 
  • Speed and volume of traffic
  • Road alignment and visibility of the pothole  
  • Position of the pothole in the road 

Potholes can also be on footpaths, pavements and cycle paths.

From Monday 18 June, the teams will be repairing roads in the following areas:

  • Brigg

Pothole Action Fund 2016-17

The Department of Transport awarded North Lincolnshire Council an additional £318,000 for the year 2016/17 as part of a national fund to reduce the number of potholes on our roads. North Lincolnshire Council used the funds to enhance and support a number of surface treatment programmes tackling potholes across the county.

This funding was specifically targeted at a surface treatment called micro-asphalt. This treatment is used to prevent potholes forming in the first place when roads are beginning to show wear and tear.

The funding allowed North Lincolnshire Council to undertake the following work at the following sites:
