Nottinghamshire is the UK’s worst region for potholed roads with a staggering quarter of a million holes reported to the local council, according to new data.
The East Midlands council reported 106,000 more potholes than the next worst council area – Devon County Council – between January 2017 and June 2019, according to data obtained through a Freedom of Information inquiry.
However, Nottinghamshire County Council was only the second biggest spender on repairing potholes with its £12 million a year eclipsed by the £14m spent in Hertfordshire.
The UK’s worst regions for potholes, as well as those with the fewest problems, have been revealed in figures obtained by MoneySuperMarket.
They revealed that Nottinghamshire Council identified a total of 253,920 potholes from 2017 to 2019, ahead of Devon County Council (147,779) and Kirklees Metropolitan Borough Council. Cambridgeshire (112,947) and Yorkshire’s East Riding (84,050) rounded out the five worst offenders.
