Jet Patching Thurrock's roads

16 May 2019
A special high-tech and high-speed pothole repair team has been brought in to work on roads across Thurrock for a third year.
The team from Velocity, the company which pioneered this technology to repair and fill road defects, use high-powered jets to clear potholes, seal them and then fill them in.
They will be working on 39 roads in Thurrock for 3 weeks, during which time they will fill hundreds of potholes.

More than 3,000 potholes filled

Thurrock's highways lead has welcomed the progress made on filling potholes.
Through Thurrock Council's 'clean it, cut it, fill it' initiative, engineers have been working across the borough to fix thousands of defects using various methods.
One method – jet-patching, which fills potholes in a fraction of the time of regular pothole filling – has completed for the summer while regular pothole repairs continue.
Since the works began in May, 3,062 potholes have been filled.
