South Woodford included in trial of new low-carbon fix for potholes


A number of roads across South Woodford and Wanstead were included in Redbridge Council’s trial of a new – and fast – low-carbon fix for potholes.

“The injection patcher carries out rapid pothole repairs using a pioneering technique known as injection spray patching. Firstly, air is pumped at speed into the pothole to remove dirt and debris. Seconds later, the hole is sprayed with cold bitumen, followed by a layer of aggregate applied at high speed – the whole repair takes just a couple of minutes,” said a spokesperson.
