New machine can fix a pothole in ‘minutes’

British construction firm JCB has launched a machine that it claims can fix a pothole is just eight minutes.

First trialled in 2021 by various councils across Britain, JCB says its Pothole Pro has fixed over 23,000 miles worth of roads since.

JCB adds that the Pothole Pro is a three-in-one solution specifically designed to “permanently” sort out any pothole repair at a cost of around £30.

The machine comes with three attachments to cut, crop and clean, and all that is needed after is to add tar.

The firm says it is now taking orders from across the world for its machine.
