The Velocity injection pothole patching contractor will be visiting Fryent ward to undertake substantial pothole repair work between 7th May and 26th May.
A large number of potholes will be processed quickly using this new method, each hole will take about 2 mins.
High velocity air cleans the debris and dust from the hole. Cold bitumen is forced into the cracks and crevices, sealing the defect and making watertight. Aggregate is fired into the defect coating the granules with bitumen emulsion and then compacted. This new method is not only quicker but cheaper so we get more repairs for our money.
Brent Council has allocated more money this year to try and improve the backlog of pothole and pavement repairs.
