  • I have recently had my car fixed tracking rod etc on left side due to a pot hole. Last night on my way home I hit a pot hole on the B4508 towards Highworth - it was dark and raining. The noise was deafening and frightened me so much that at the first available safe place I had to stop to check my car as I was worried it had caused damage. I will be taking my car to the garage today for it to be checked. This bit of road towards the bridge is getting worse on a day by day basis

  • On the left hand side of the road just before you reach the A420 there are several potholes. If I am lucky enough to see them in advance I have to swerve onto the opposite side of the road to avoid them. There is also a section of the road that appears to be missing and is getting worse, trying to avoid this and on the bend is very dangerous. Please can this be repaired as a matter of urgency.

  • Today I hit this pot hole heading towards highworth before the bridge. The noise was absolutely deafening and it blew the tyre. Which was terrifying for everyone, especially my two young children. We had to sit on the side of the road and wait for the car to get towed home.
