Bexley council given £700,000 to fix potholes

A scheme announced in the budget to fix potholes will see Bexley Council receive £700k. The Chancellor announced an extra £420m nationwide.

Drivers claimed over £100,000 in compensation payouts in 2017.

It comes as new budget proposals for Bexley feature new technology to deal with potholes.

The council is planning to use modern technology to find holes. They hope a new system will be monitor every street and spot issues at an early stage.

Yet it appears they are not using tried and tested methods such as the well-established FixMystreet website and app. Well, if they are, very few Bexley residents are reporting compared to neighbouring boroughs.

Running a site alone takes time and a fair bit of money. Adverts are far from enough to cover it and my living costs as a private renter.

I've lived in south east London most of my life growing up in Greenwich borough and working in the area for many years. The site has contributors on occasion and we cover many different topics. Living and working in the area offers an insight into what is happening locally.
