  • Dear Sirs THIS IS A RECURRING PROBLEM, AS SOON AS IT RAINS AGAIN THERE WILL BE THICK MUD ON THE HIGHWAY (from the skip lorries wheels) One of your Highways Inspectors needs to visit the skip company and stop them dumping mud on the highway. (Which must be an offence) How many times do I need to keep sending this same message and nothing happens.

  • A year has passed and still no improvement. The skip lorries still continue to dump excessive mud On the highway. Making the road surface very very slippery and dangerous. But still nothing happens.

  • I can concur with Mr Anonymous above. I have also reported this continually, and alas still nothing gets done. Almost as if the skip company are untouchable. This too with the wrecked speed restriction signs adjacent to the junction and the junction road markings have all been damaged too.
