  • There are two more potholes next to this one, smaller in size but, nevertheless they are there! All three appear AGAIN after heavy rainfall. I have lost count as to how many times they’ve been repaired. What a waste of money. Wouldn’t it be more beneficial to replace the whole section where the potholes Are, right across the road ( where the road was initially dug up) I see that the team has highlighted the hole in the pictures above for repair but not the others which is ridiculous as I’m guessing the water is getting in through the other holes !

  • The crew turned up at approx 11:40 on 23.10.19 and filled the hole marked by white spray paint . As you can see, they didn’t do anything with the two other holes just a matter of feet away! The workers were questioned as to why they wouldn’t be doing the other two and the reply was they can only do what is marked ! Two local residents tried to persuade them otherwise but to no avail ! What a complete waste of taxpayers money! The road is still dangerous for cyclists of which, many pass along this road. And, what a complete lack of common sense! I despair! The statement above says “it has been actioned to be fixed “ A large down pour of rain will seep into the remaking holes and loosen the new fix and we will be back to square one in quick time!
