The tarmac covering the cabling channel is rapidly collapsing and filling with water. A significant hole is beginning to form. This is at the end of our drive and is a danger to pedestrians

  • This really needs fixing soon, it is a pedestrian hazard. The elderly ladies who pass by keep complaining to me. One has already stumbled.

  • Can I please check on the situation on this problem? It seems this is the area in front of the drive of number 53 which is the house we just purchased. This affects the use of our drive if not fixed. Can this please be looked at urgently as it is not only a hazard to the public but also might render our drive unusable for some time. I am also concerned that cars could be damaged if the pavement collapses whilst passing over.

    It is now several months since this problem had been first reported and nothing has been fixed. The tarmac breaks and collapses more and more and our cars will eventually get damaged and our drive rendered unusable. The tree on the corner of the public road seems to be the issue on one side lifting the tarmac up. Can this be removed? Please look at fixing this problem as a matter of urgency now.
