Photo #20650

The headline "Assen still has enough gritting salt". The photo above it shows how pot-holes are dealt with before they have a chance to get serious. They're fixed even before the winter has gone.

A gas burner is used to melt the ice away and the holes are filled and smoothed over immediately. It needs to be done like this. It's still -8 C half way through February.

To keep high quality road surfaces, road maintenance can't stand still for half the year.

See also #20471 for the other way that pot-holes are avoided: immaculately smooth surfaces which don't have gaps for ice to form in.
