  • This issue is still very much not fixed! The hole is still there, getting bigger, and the lay-by still floods in rain. Leaf mulch making it more like a western township than a tarmac road. Please actually fix it. I cannot see anything nearby that you might have done I. It’s place.

  • Still getting worse and likely to severely injure a cyclist if they hit the pothole or slide on the leaves / standing water.

    With the onset of colder weather I suspect the pothole to get bigger.

    Please do something!

  • This issue continues to get worse and has not been fixed. It was first reported in April 2018, access is easy and off the main road so could be done at any time. Please have a look as it is not about 8 inches and breaking up.

  • Ok another month and not an attempt to fix. Even more treacherous in the snow and ice. 18” wide hole will cause damage to cars and cyclists. I’ve given up on the lay-by not being cleaned or the flooding stopped. At the very least please fix a 9 month old pothole.

  • It’s coming up to one year since the first report. I will repeat the report to see if quantity of reports has any effect. BIG HOLE STILL NOT FIXED.

  • Ok, now over a year and still getting worse. POTHOLE over 30cm wide causing lots of debris and potential accidents. Nearly stepped back into it from car and twisted ankle last week. Please fix!
