FOLLOWING the recent freezing weather conditions, Stockton Council is now checking the Borough's road for surface damage.
Like many areas across the country, some roads across Stockton Borough may have suffered damage caused by the frost, ice and corrosive nature of the gritting salt.
Highway maintenance teams are now being deployed to identify any roads which are in need of repair due to the adverse weather conditions and additional resources will be used to repair the potholes or cracked road surfaces.
Councillor Bob Cook, Stockton Council's Cabinet Member for Transport and Regeneration, said: "Now the freeze has started to thaw, any damage to roads will be apparent.
"We will be monitoring the highways to assess the road conditions and any subsequent repairs will be carried out as soon as possible."
Members of the public can report damaged roads or potholes through the Stockton Council website by clicking on the 'report it' section on the homepage. Alternatively, you can call (01642) 391959.
