Potholes – Get Out Your Ruler!
When is a hole a pothole? The definition is on the MK Council website. Once the depth exceeds 40mm (on strategic and category 3a and 3b routes) or 50mm in depth (on category 4a and 4b routes) and 250mm in diameter, the inspector will deem the defect a pothole and will assign a category dependent on how deep the pothole is and what category of road the pothole is on.
This can range from a response within 2 hours, 24 hours or 28 days or to be included within a planned works programme.
