A number of large deep potholes

I have complained on a few occasions on the condition of Ampney Orchard. Every time the potholes get patch that might last a month or two then reappear and normally much larger. The last time the patching was done I do not think that the company that carried out the works were very competent as the patches did not last a month. The road now is so bad that when driving in or out you zig zag to miss the holes. One this is not safe as could end up driving into an incoming vehicle two damage to cars such as wheels punctures etc. who pays??? This road now needs a proper surface applied not just an afterthought of patching

  • Looking at the number of potholes they are repairing maybe two or three potholes. This will be very disappointing as there are a lot more than that our road looks like a chess board with patches that do not last. With amount of patches and holes I would suggest a resurface.

  • Really do you think that the potholes have been fixed Can’t believe that our county council have accepted such poor workmanship it isa joke. We pay a lot of money to the council but to see this type of acceptable works is disgraceful. I personally am involved in a lot of section 278 works and this was done on my beat I would first of all query the company competency as this looks like carried out by a 6 year old I now think it is time to get the local MP involved Unbelievable
