11.07.23 – Work ongoing at Festival Park, JCB Pothole Pro
Written by Hitmix Local News on 11 July 2023
Motorists should be extra cautious when travelling to and from Festival Park as important work to improve the Marina Way roundabout and the highway is being carried out. Traffic management is in place, but please give yourself extra time for your journey. The work will be ongoing for 11 weeks.
Highways teams at Staffordshire County Council will soon be taking delivery of the latest addition to their fight against defects—the JCB Pothole Pro.
Fresh off the production line at local employer, JCB Heavy Products factory in Uttoxeter, the Pothole Pro is set to be brought into commission by the county council’s highways teams.
Crews will also undertake training on the new machine, and it will get its first outing later this month when the council repairs a roundabout on the A522 outside the entrance to the JCB factory.
The JCB Pothole Pro machine is a unique 3-in-1 machine, designed to repair potholes in an average time of eight minutes without the need for additional specialist equipment or extra manpower and delivering up to a 50% cut in daily costs.
