There are numerous very large potholes which have now become dangerous and impossible to avoid the entire length of Nethercote Lane. This problem was reported months ago and has been steadily getting worse but has been ignored by you. Immediate action is now required before someone has an accident please. The potholes are so deep that damage will be caused to cars. Please see previous posts for photos.

  • So, a week ago, someone came by and put a warning triangle of a bumpy road at the entrance to Nethercote Lane.... i am beyond furious that they think this is acceptable. Please update this ASAP.

  • Thank you for your report. Unfortunately it's not suitable for immediate repair but we have forwarded it to our Asset Renewals Team who will consider it when planning their future works.

  • A totally unsatisfactory result of being told that no one can do anything about these crater potholes down a road that is used by pedestrians, cyclists, cars, lorries and recycling trucks. There are at least 12 that need urgent attention.

  • This problem has not been fixed. The potholes are getting larger and with the weather due to get colder and wetter will continue to do so. We have already had one smashed wheel due to these potholes and will be taking it further.

  • There are also bout 50 anglers who use this lane on a regular basis. These potholes are damaging our cars.It is unacceptable to state "Unfortunately it's not suitable for immediate repair" It needs doing NOW!
