Stockport tackles potholes with moles

Stockport Council has re-launched its Pothole Moles initiative to blitz even more potholes around the borough.

The ‘moles’ are targeting the whole of the borough responding to residents’ requests to fix potholes.

Last year the pothole moles made over 650 repairs to local roads, using 30t of material to ensure that roads were well maintained and safe for all users.

As well as the Pothole Moles, Stockport Council has invested £2M to tackle problems on the road network caused by the severe weather.

The funding, was made available as part of the Stockport Boost initiative which aims to streamline services and offer further value for money for residents. 

Stockport Council leader David Goddard said: “As part of our Stockport Boost programme, we are committed to investing money into the borough’s roads to ensure they are safe for all road users.

“I would encourage residents to call or use our online form to report potholes in their area. Alternatively they can report potholes by downloading our new Looking Local app, which is an extremely useful way of communicating directly with the Council.”
