  • Pothole constantly reported, repairs undertaken are not satisfactory. This was reported again immediately after the “repair” was last carried out because it immediately started to break apart. The response was that it did not meet the criteria for repair. What will it take to get this repaired properly? This needs to be looked at urgently
