Enfield repaired more potholes than any other London borough in 2013
Enfield has repaired more potholes than any other borough in London.
Enfield Borough Council repaired 10,787 holes in 2013, nearly 1,000 more than any other authority in the capital.
The council also spent £322,420 on pothole repairs, figures obtained in a Freedom of Information request by ITV show.
It was also revealed that Kensington & Chelsea Borough Council repaired just 111 potholes in the whole of 2013.
An Enfield Council spokesman said: “Last year we allocated over £5million to repair roads and potholes in Enfield as part of extensive plans to maintain and improve our road network and the £322,000 quoted was a tiny percentage of the money actually spent.
“We are one of the largest boroughs in London and have many hundreds of miles of roads to maintain including many rural routes. We consider it vitally important to keep them well maintained because they are the arteries Enfield’s residents and businesses rely on to get to work and move supplies around.
“As well as the 10,787 potholes we repaired we also resurfaced 20km of roads and repaired 9km of pavements.”
