A team of ‘pothole busters’ hired by Hounslow Council is aiming to destroy the driver’s worst demons in the borough once and for all.
In an echo of the famous Ghostbusters movies, the council’s pothole busting team is encouraging you to call up if you spot a road surface problem so it can get to the scene and blast it with tarmac.
It promises to bring its top-notch road repair equipment to tackle the job and hopefully prevent you from getting ‘slimed’ by driving into a pothole in the process.
The pothole pledge underlines the fact the council says it sees dealing with potholes as one of its key priorities.
The council website guides residents on how to report potholes and you can follow the progress of your case online.
The council says all roads and highways in the borough are routinely inspected for defects, but potholes can quickly deteriorate, so early intervention is crucial.
