Long series of potholes along Lyne Road

I have reported these potholes several times over the past six months and they are still waiting to be repaired. I had been told on each occasion by the council that repairs had been scheduled. I appreciate it has been a rough year with the February storms and then the Covid-19 virus lockdown.

As I have said previously, whenever large vehicles such as double decker buses drive over these potholes, I feel strong vibrations throughout my 1858 cottage, and my neighbours have reported the same. I often also hear clanking below my property, which suggests the vibrations are travelling through sewage pipes and other old underground works (Lyne Road passes a conservation zone). To my great shock, my kitchen cabinets fell off the wall recently, and the traffic vibrations from years of poor road maintenance were surely a factor in causing this to happen. I will now have to pay for my fan extractor and kitchen cabinets to be reinstalled.

As the bus service is currently less frequent than normal, it would be a good time to resurface Lyne Road. I am very worried about how things will be once the bus service returns to normal.
