Constant stream of water issuing from bank along roadside on Mill Lane running down towards Jacobs Yard. Stream is causing significant potholing along verge and in main carriageway. Problem is worsened by necessary on street parking on opposite side of Mill Lane. Engineers (OCC or THames Water??) dug up verge several months ago but left without doing anything (other than leaving area of water exit even more exposed and a couple of traffic cones!!

  • Many thanks for the above but whilst your engineers decide on a long(er) term solution can the potholes be filled? The depth of them is such that damage to vehicles is becoming increasingly likely....
