BARNSLEY Council has promised that pot hole repairs in the borough will last longer thanks to a new piece of machinery.

The velocity road repairer has been delivered this week and, according to the council, will repair pot holes quicker, which will mean staff will be able to repair more.

Spokesman Coun Roy Miller said: “The advantage of the new process is that the repairs will have a far longer life than conventional repairs which will mean fewer visits to some of the more problematic defects.”

He added that the machinery would be best used on the rural road networks of Barnsley.

Where do you think the machine could be best used? Which street has the worst pot holes in Barnsley?

The reason why the road has not been finished near WICKES, is that WICKES are in dispute with the council over land that belongs to them, bringing the whole works to a standstill whilst this is goes to court.

They could come & use it on our road at Wombwell where the private contractor resurfaced the road on Saturday & did an horrendous job, patches all over the place, crap, cheap chippings used - oh forgot they're trying to save money so using second rate stuff, and I suppose we should be grateful we've had it done shouldnt I?!

The pot holes are no different to unecessary speed humps in certain areas of Barnsley which are doing damage to our car
