Best practice guide for the selection of pothole repair options

Friday, July 8, 2016 - 15:15

Potholes are a major problem in many parts of the world. This guide sets out the principal options for repairing potholes before describing a procedure for selecting an appropriate option for different situations using a series of flowcharts. There are default values for the various questions asked in the flowcharts, but other values can be used to reflect the local situation or policy. Whilst better selection will not affect the generation of new potholes, it should mitigate the effect of those potholes and reduce the potential for them to reappear after maintenance treatment.  This UK Transport Research Laboratory Road Note is available after registering on the site:
