Tackling Britain’s Pothole Problem with Degafill™ Permanent Pothole Repair

Tackling Britain’s Pothole Problem with Degafill™ Permanent Pothole Repair

Potholes are causing serious problems on UK roads. We’re tackling the problem one pothole at a time with our Degafill™ Permanent Pothole Repair solutions. Let’s take a look at the problem, and how we can help solve it. 

Recent research by the Asphalt Industry Alliance (AIA), revealed some worrying statistics about the state of the UK’s roads. 17% of our roads are in poor condition and a staggering £16.3 billion is needed to fix a growing backlog of repairs.  The BBC has reported that roads in England and Wales are at ‘breaking point’ and the growing potholes are to blame. 

What’s the big problem with potholes?

 In 2023, the AA reported 623,000 incidents of tyre, wheel, steering and suspension damage caused by potholes. That’s 2 million vehicles last year alone affected by a lack of maintenance.   

While smaller potholes are unlikely to cause a major accident, if a vehicle hits a lot over some time, it can damage tyres, steering and suspension. Large potholes can cause significantly more damage, including major accidents. Not only are they dangerous to motorists, they also pose a risk to cyclists and pedestrians. According the the RAC:

  • On average, there are around 6 potholes per mile on council controlled roads in England and Wales
  • There are more than 1 million potholes in the UK
  • Motorists are twice as likely to break down due to repeated wear caused by potholes 
  • In 2023, there were 33% more pothole related breakdowns compared with 2022.
