White Van Men and Deliveroo drivers urged to form army of pothole spotters


MINISTERS want White Van Men and Deliveroo drivers to form an army of pothole spotters.

Firms including Uber, Tesco, and Ocado will be able to report the worst stretches of tarmac for fast-track repairs before schools return.

Grant Shapps calls for an army of potholes spotters to report the most dangerous ones in a ‘first-of-its-kind audit’ for fast-track repairs

The Transport Secretary wants to ensure they are ‘fixed as quickly as possible’ after promising a £2.5billion repair fund

Whitehall will use their reports to create a “first of its kind audit” of potholes in England.

They have already taken advantage of the drop in traffic during the lockdown to resurface 319 miles of road.

Transport Secretary Grant Shapps has vowed to “relentlessly” target the worst remaining “hotspots” with cash from a £2.5bn repair fund.

He said: “I want to go further by identifying critical potholes and ensuring these are fixed as quickly as possible.

“Better road surfaces benefit motorists and cyclists alike ensuring the back to school and work environment is safer for everyone.”
