This damage to the road has been created today. A trench has been dug across the road from the adjacent development site to the vicinity of a telegraph pole. The trench has not been sufficiently backfilled, leaving a large depression on the opposite side of the road to the development (Lakehouse Developments). This has resulted in a damaged tyre sidewall (new tyre required), a damaged wheel and requirement for wheel alignmet.

  • Trench appears to have got deeper, resulting in damage to sidewall of tyre (requiring replacement). There are 3 trenches that have been dug and all are showing significant potholes that are likely to cause potential damage to vehicles.
