Mayo potholes to get priority once Covid restrictions are lifted
An elected member of Mayo County Council has stated he is 'inundated' with complaints over potholes.
Erris-based Sean Carey expressed his view at a meeting of the West Mayo Municipal District when he and his elected colleagues called for a velocity patcher to be seen more regularly fixing potholes in the area.
The machine has not been operational in the district, and Councillor Peter Flynn appealed that they would get their fair share of it.
Councillor Gerry Coyle was not pleased to hear that the further you go from Castlebar, the harder it is to get the patcher – the 'down time' due to distance is a consideration.
He was told there is already a very efficient pothole repair system in his area, Belmullet.
Once restrictions lift, potholes will be the first thing to be addressed and enquiries will be made as to what is on offer in terms of the patcher this year.
Councillor Sean Carey said he has been 'inundated' with calls about potholes.
