Ultracrete's Instant Road Repair cold lay macadam can help.

On a private street, responsibility for maintenance lies with its owners.  With the state of UK roads a current 'hot topic', and the colder weather creeping upon us again, Ultracrete's Instant Road Repair is an obvious solution for the first time permanent repair of potholes.

Potholes account for a huge 12% of all CTC insurance claims across the UK, with a massive £63.2 million spent on road repair and highway maintenance

Earlier this year, BBC Radio told us that it can cost UK motorists, on average, £1 million - with a pothole recorded every 110 metres!  The recent UK icy spells earlier this year do take on some of the blame for leaving our roads in such a state.

986,195 potholes were filled in the UK in the past 12 months alone.

With the number of potholes growing substantially it seems that quick, easy and cost effective solutions are being sought by all.  ULTRACRETE's now renowned INSTANT ROAD REPAIRcold lay macadam is most certainly a market-leading solution for the permanenrepair of potholes.
