Better pothole repairs! #dundeewestend

Dundee City Council currently has on loan a demonstration model of a new pothole repair system “JCB Road Mender” and yesterday, along with some council colleagues I attended a demo of the system in action, repairing potholes in Newhall Gardens.

I was very impressed with both the speed and quality of repair – the quality can be seen in the second photo below.    

There’s obviously a significant cost in purchasing new plant like this but the quality of repair is very good indeed and certainly worthy of consideration within the council’s capital programme.
