Council chiefs say progress is being made to tackle potholes across Staffordshire as part of a £15.5million investment plan.
Almost 1,500 were repaired across the county last month – with highways bosses expecting that figure to rise in May thanks to good weather.
Staffordshire County Council said more than 9,000 additional potholes will be fixed because of the additional funding it has set aside for repairs.
Cllr David Williams, cabinet member for highways and transport at Staffordshire County Council, said:
“As we move into May, our maintenance work steps up a gear so we can make the most of the good weather.
“We are pulling out all the stops to not just complete hotspot repairs, but also gully cleaning and surface dressing to ensure issues are dealt with.
“Maintaining and improving Staffordshire’s 6,000km of highways is very challenging, especially in light of rising costs and increasing road usage.
“The extra investment we have made in our roads will help keep our roads in good condition, as well as funding improvement projects that will help the connectivity of our county.”Cllr David Williams
