It has had numerous patch repairs over the years, but has sunk so badly now we have to bump up into our drive and it has cracked the kerb in several places with the weight of vehicles humping up over the kerb all the time. It is very dangerous for cyclists as they have to swerve into the middle of the road to try and avoid it. It also fills with water and becomes a river when it rains which floods down into our driveway. it is the main roda through the village and when buses or lorries go over the sunk road it shakes our whole house.

Council ref: ENQ21899700
