Of these, 2,060 had been reported to the council.

Potholes deeper than 40mm on A roads are usually filled within 24 hours of reporting while on B and C roads it normally takes up to 28 days.

Across the 30 days of April, 28 footpaths were also repaired and 26 roads resurfaced.

Revealed: Which roads have the most potholes

Coun Richard Davies (Con), executive member for highways said: “We’re targeting the areas that will have the biggest improvement for the most road users and we’re going far beyond what’s reported to us in terms of numbers.

“I’m delighted that our positive improvements across the county are returning a real-world change for road users.

“We still have a lot of work to do, we are very aware of that, but we’re moving in the right direction and continuing on the right road.

“It’s a mammoth job across our 5,500 miles of mostly-rural roads network, but we have never shied away from the task at hand and will continue to work extremely hard for everyone who uses our roads to travel around Lincolnshire.”
