All along Girdlestone road there is huge potholes. many of these cause drivers to need to drive on the wrong side of the road to avoid them, especially bad avoiding the ones on the corner by massey close as you are therefore driving on the wrong side of the road round a blind corner. also particularly bad along the stretch by coolidge close. This is a busy bus route and often these holes are full of water when bus's smash through them and splash pedestrians with the water.

  • This road surface has been shockingly poor for many months now, reports have been ignored and there are huge gaping holes in the road. The response from the Council has been shameful.

  • The westbound lane approaching Massey Close is in horrific condition, the road is more pothole than tarmac. There is a particularly nasty hole just at the junction with Massey Close, I seem to remember it being 'fixed' within the last 6 months or so and this has now failed. Very dangerous.
