The road with the most amount of complaints about its potholes in Nottingham has been revealed by the City Council.

Hucknall Road was the subject of 38 complaints between April 2017 and March 2018.

Figures were revealed after a Freedom of Information (FOI) request was answered by the council.

A spokesman for the council said: “We are aware Hucknall Road is in need of attention which is why resurfacing this major road is one of the top priorities in our annual maintenance schedule.”

The work will be carried out on the 3.5 mile long stretch later this month.

It will take place from the junction of Arnold Road to the junction of Gala Way and will begin on Monday June 18.

It is expected to take around ten days to complete and will see the road closed between 9.30am and 3.30pm from Monday to Friday for two weeks.

Local diversions will be in place and access to side streets will be restricted with some resident parking will be unavailable at times.

Nottingham City Council’s portfolio holder for transport Councillor Dave Liversidge said: “Hucknall Road is a key route into the city and the surface is in need of attention.

“These works will ensure the road remains safe for all road users.

“The resurfacing will be completed outside of morning and evening peak times so we can minimise disruption for commuters and help keep Nottingham moving.”

Campaigners in one Notts village made headlines around the world last year after holding a mock birthday party complete with a cake for a pothole they claimed was being ignored by Nottinghamshire County Council.

One campaigner said the hole first appeared on Main Road in Plumtree ‘at least’ around March 2015.

She and other villagers reported it to Nottinghamshire County Council, she said, but the hole has not been repaired and grew even deeper.
