In April 2011 the Government announced an initiative to review the pothole problem under the umbrella of the Department for Transport sponsored Highways Maintenance Efficiency Programme (HMEP)

The Review has considered how local highway authorities in England currently deal with potholes, as well as wider stakeholder views and implications. The focus of the Review has been to identify good practice through consultation, in order to demonstrate how potholes and other related aspects of highway maintenance may be dealt with more efficiently and effectively. This will also enable sharing of knowledge between authorities, including lessons learnt


Following the completion of this review and the publishing of the final document there are three key messages


  1. Right First Time 
  2. Prevention is better than Cure
  3. Clarity for the Public
