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.
