Boost for pothole website app

by Nigel Wigmore

THE government has given £30,000 to back the development of an innovative smartphone application to report potholes, Roads Minister Robert Goodwill has announced.

The Department for Transport (DfT) pledged the cash to enable CTC, the National Cycling Charity, to revamp its Fill that hole website and develop a new app compatible with smartphones running Android software.

More than nine million iPhone users can download the website’s current app to report potholed roads to their councils. The new app could boost that figure to more than 26 million.

It is expected to be ready in February, at the start of “pothole season” when the winter damage to roads is at its greatest.
