In April 2011 Norman Baker MP announced a review into the problem of potholes. A progress report was published in December, and this is the final report.

The review considers how local highway authorities deal with potholes, as well as wider stakeholder views and implications.

It makes 17 recommendations that will, if implemented, provide an improvement in highway maintenance and reduce the number of potholes occurring.

There are three key messages in the report:

Prevention is better than cure
Right first time for better repairs
Clarity for the public
