Pothole Patrol

Pothole Patrol launched by MP

Alun Cairns MP has launched his campaign to help tackle potholes throughout the Vale of Glamorgan. The ‘Pothole Patrol’ campaign aims for residents to report potholes they find in their area.

 The UK Government is investing more than £5 billion from 2020 to 2025 to maintain local roads, with an extra £200 million announced at the Budget, which will help fix millions of potholes a year, making journeys smoother and safer for everyone.

The Welsh Government will receive funding from the UK Governments new commitment through the Barnett Formula but they have yet to commit to the same pot hole scheme as in England.

By filling out the survey below, the information can be passed on to the Vale of Glamorgan Council and get the damage repaired.


Commenting, Alun Cairns MP said:

“Potholes are an issue that is raised consistently on the doorstep. Not only are they an annoyance but are causing a danger to many road users. And residents rightly want to see more done to fix our roads.

“People in the Vale of Glamorgan should be able to get to work and see friends and family without fear of damaging their vehicles due to poor quality roads. That is why I am launching this campaign so that any concerned constituents can make me aware of potholes in their area.

“I would like to welcome the UK Government’s Spring Budget announcement last month, of their investment of £200 million to fix around 4 million potholes.

“As a result of this funding announcement, the Welsh Government will receive £180 million through the Barnett formula. I will continue to push for Welsh Government to follow the UK Government’s actions, and to ringfence this funding for potholes.”
