THE TEN ROADS READERS VOTED TOp OF THE pOTS!
READERS have been voting for the roads with the worst potholes in Greater Manchester and these are the top ten.
Full of potholes, they are a picture of disrepair. Road markings have been chipped away, huge chunks of asphalt are missing – some even down to the cobbles.
Many of these roads are busy routes, one is even a main route to Wythenshawe Hospital. Earlier this month, we asked our readers to tell us where the most potholed roads in the region were.
Unsurprisingly there were a lot of suggestions. But there is good news –many have been earmarked for repair. Sadly we couldn’t name and shame all the roads, but with Greater Manchester being handed nearly £3m to patch up more than 60,000 potholes, fingers crossed the majority of them will get sorted.
The government cash – from a £100m pot – will be used to fill and repair roads left damaged by an ‘ unusually prolonged spell of freezing weather’ during Storm Emma and last month’s ‘Beast from the East’.
Bolton will get £318,470, Bury £200,241, Manchester £438,956, Oldham £269,365, Rochdale £247,494, Salford £268,154, Stockport £297,212, Tameside £228,036, Trafford £244,119 and Wigan £369,956.
