      Article: Jul 23, 2018

      According to the charity, 'We Are Cycling UK', Gloucestershire is 121st out of 214 authorities for filling in potholes in England, Scotland and Wales. This puts the county in the third quartile for pothole repairs, with less than one in five reported potholes confirmed as repaired in the last year.
