Fight against pot holes has started

Fight against pot holes has started

Due to snow and ice, roads in Vienna are dotted by pot holes. Teams who mend the roads have gone back to work again. Damages can be reported.

Repair teams under the surveillance of the magistrate MA 28 (Road administration and construction) attempt to get rid of the deepest and most severe pot holes caused by frost damage.

8,900 damages were reported in December alone last year. Figures for January will be released in the middle of February, Matthias Holzmueller from MA 28 said.

There are, however, figures based on experience. It is estimated that there will be at least 10,000 pot holes in February. This means a huge challenge for the repair teams.

"The season, when pot holes occur, lasts from January until March. 40 experts organise the removal of road pot holes", said Holzmueller.

Eleven repair trailers and 35 employees in total are now on the roads to fight the frost damages.

Reports of road holes or other damages can be made by calling the info hotline for road and transport (+43 (1) 9 – 555 – 9) or by filling out a form on the Internet.
