JCB will unveil a new machine that is set to change the way local authorities deal with potholes at a launch event next week (11 January).
The machine, which has been described as a ‘game changer” for councils/contractors, will enable them to repair potholes permanently within eight minutes, accordimg to a report by LCRIG.
Industry professionals are being invited to attend a virtual demonstration and hear first-hand from both a national contractor and a local authority who have both successfully trialled the JCB machine. The council will highlight how it has vastly reduced its pothole repair backlog thanks to the machine – and saved time and money.
Ben Rawding, Product Team – Specialist at JCB, said: “This event presents a great opportunity to see a better way of working. JCB constantly innovates and we have come up with a machine that will save local authorities time and deliver a permanent repair. The machine also delivers a huge reduction in pothole repair costs.
“The machine will be revealed for the first time at the event and industry professionals will hear first-hand how this machine has improved British roads for one of the UK’s leading local authorities.
“We are now ready to launch this machine nationally. There’s a need for permanent pothole repairs in the UK and a need to get away from the inefficient repair methods being used in some areas. We are truly excited about the development of this new JCB pothole repair solution.”
