  • The potholes on this part of the hill are still a big issue, for some reason the road was never resurfaced like the rest of the street a few years ago and has continued to be patched up with little success since. It is a real hazard as drivers try to avoid getting in them and so you are constantly faced with traffic on wrong position in the road which is made worse by the steep gradient and resident parking. It is an accident waiting to happen which never gets prioritized just patched over, this lasting for less than a week once it is done.

  • How is this not meet the criteria? You have to dodge the potholes driving up the hill, miss the parked cars at the top and then avoid cars trying to navigate their way down. On the way down is just as bad. The last repair didn't last and yet when the relay was carried out you didn't do the worst part of the hill?
