Following successful local trials, road users in East Anglia and the East of England will soon see some innovative machines maintaining the trunk roads in the region.
Leading public services provider Amey is rolling out three state-of-the-art road maintenance vehicles, as part of two Highways Agency Asset Support Contracts (ASC) commencing in April.

The firm has invested £500,000 on two road patchers, which were recently trialled in Bedfordshire and can fix road potholes within two minutes, and a high-speed sweeper to improve the condition of the ASC Area 6 (East Anglia) and Area 8 (East of England) road networks.

The road patcher machines, which have been custom-built for Amey, and are brand new to the Highways Agency network, can be fully controlled from the cab.

This not only improves safety by removing the need for a road worker to be in the carriageway but also is great news for drivers as the pothole is fully fixed in just two minutes, rather than the hour that conventional methods can take.

The patchers will become part of a ‘find and fix’ assessment process whereby we carry out inspections of trunk roads and motorways with the vehicle with a pot hole being fixed rapidly once the pothole is reached. This can usually be carried out without the need for traffic management.

The driver operates a robotic arm which extends from the cab over the pothole and fills it with material to fix the hole. The patcher can then move onto another location as needed.
