    Still open, via questionnaire

  • Morning, This water is STILL leaking, and after months of reporting. This patch of the road is very dangerous for cyclists, not to mention further damaging the road (££££££). Can this please be fixed ASAP, so the public can stop wasting their time reporting the issue, you already know about. Thank you.

  • Thought I would add to this, perhaps the more people who report it the more likely it is to be addressed. I drove up the hill here on Wed 16/6/2021 which was a dry after a long dry period and there was still water streaming across the road. I think there is no doubt that this is coming from a water pipe rather than runoff from the field. As others have said its damaging the road and is potentially dangerous for cyclists, motorcyclists and drivers not to mention the massive waste of water. It needs to be fixed properly as a matter or urgency.
