Once again we’ve reached a ‘perfect storm’ – the time when roads and paths are deteriorating and we’re approaching the financial year-end when councils want to use up this year’s budget. And now the CTC has announced (thanks to DfT funding) an Android version of their wonderful fillthathole app has been released. You can use the app to report potholes, road defects and other forms of obstruction that could be dangerous to cyclists. Reports are then forwarded to the local authority concerned for action. Of course the iPhone version is still available. Our councils are pretty good at responding and action is usually taken within a couple of weeks. The satisfaction of seeing a patch of tarmac with your name on it is unbounded!
