24% of B and C roads in Derbyshire are in need of repair.

18% of B and C roads in Southend-On-Sea should be considered for repair however, they aren’t the worst.

Analytics released by the AA have stated that 15% of unclassified roads are considered to be in the red category which is the worst ranking possible.

“Roads across the country are in an awful state and with winter just around the corner the plague of potholes will only spread.”

Especially with the winter coming, the roads need to be in better condition otherwise more drivers will be finding issues with their vehicles. This issue mixed with the cost of living will result in more and more people putting of maintaining the maintenance of their vehicle.
