Two major potholes and damaged road with flooding.

This area is an ongoing problem because of flooding from a drain further up the road that is blocked. It is dangerous for cyclists and they are deep enough to cause damage to car tyres.

  • Operatives arrived and filled in the pothole - however it was not done well and the hole has reappeared together with another one on the opposite side of the road. Nothing was done to clear the drain a little further up the road which means that the water is still running down the road and increasing the flooding problem. You really should do more to cure this problem.

  • The holes were filled badly and within a couple of days one half had collapsed. It is such a waste of money not to fill potholes properly. .

  • Flooding has stopped because the water has dried up. Potholes have white lines round but nothing has been done.

  • Potholes still need work. Very disappointing.
