The Importance of Pothole Repair

Pothole repair is an extremely important area of road and highway repair.Almost 630,000 potholes were reported to councils in England, Scotland and Wales between January and November 2023, resulting in a five-year high.

The average cost for a pothole repair is reported at £250. The typical damage from impacting a pothole can include cracks (in both the windows and the windscreen), buckled wheels, lumps in tyres, cracked alloys, as well as problems with the tracking and wheel balancing.

As well as this damage, broken suspension springs and damaged shock absorbers can occur from driving over a pothole. This level of potential damage makes potholes a real nightmare for drivers and pothole repair an absolute essential service.


The cause of potholes is simple: a combination of wet weather conditions and increased traffic. What starts as a small defect or crack in the road surface allows water to penetrate. During cold weather, the water freezes and expands to form a cavity. As more water settles in the hole, the hole expands. This situation only gets worse when combined with daily road use.

A reported repair bill for UK motorists ran into £684 million during 2015, which has no doubt increased since it is time for an efficient and innovative highway repair solution.

Our Pothole Repair Solutions

Our pothole repair surface technology has been developed for speedy, sustainable, safe, and effective pothole repair and road maintenance. At Bituchem, we prioritise the safety of our highways by preventing accidents, unsafe surfaces, injuries and unnecessary costs.

The innovative highway emulsion we provide is used in collaboration with our partner’s mobile patch repair systems. It is ideal for planned and emergency pothole repair to the carriageway. All highway repair work is carried out by the operator from the cab of the truck: using an adjustable boom extending from the front of the vehicle which greatly improves safety.

We can either supply your contractor with the specialist materials for pothole repair or the BituChem Contracting Team can carry out the necessary highway maintenance ourselves. Call or email us to find out more.
