The cabinet portfolio for the environment, which covers highway maintenance, was ...placed in the hands of Councillor Brian Coleman, who claimed his priority was going to be “roads, roads, roads”.The "pothole elimination programme", or PEP for short. I feel a series of puns coming on.
The first step seems now to be the setting up of the new “pothole elimination programme”, which aims to deal with the remaining potholes on principle [sic] roads by July 31, and all others by the end of October.
Cllr Coleman said: “This push means motorists will no longer need to navigate potholes on the borough's principal roads.
“I want Barnet residents to go about their business safely and smoothly.”
He said on average, the council repairs 1,000 potholes each year, a figure surpassed by the end of January.
