A Humber council has introduced an £800,000 project to protect roads and paths from potholes.
Hull City Council has employed a team of nine people to fix defects in the road that would not normally be repaired until it became a pothole.
The council said it hoped repairing faults before they form a pothole will mean less-costly work in the future.
A city council spokesman said repairs will only take place on roads maintained by the council.
Councillor Dave Woods said: "Poor roads and footpath conditions are hazardous and expensive.
"We hope our repairs now will make them safer."
