The ongoing Pothole issue
Herts County Council invest £90,000 a year on highways and sorted out the potholes in Hillside Road in the latter part of last year. But potholes are constantly needing attention. Potholes form when the asphalt road surface cracks under heat and pressure of constant traffic. The resulting crevices let rain and snow seep in and during cold patches, when the water freezes and expands, it pushes out some of the dirt and gravel, leaving a hole when the water eventually melts. Constant driving over the holes make matters worse.
