Back to all reports

The road has again failed both in terms of potholes and unevenness. The entire road between Finmere and Water Stratford and Finmere contains a number of pot holes well in excess of 50mm deep and many of which will cause damage to vehicles if hit. Due to the nature of the road they are difficult to see especially when it has rained. The damage to this road has been a constant problem over many years due to inadequate and poor quality repairs in the past. This is now a significant Health and Safety issue

As above the road has been allowed to deteriorate over many years without adequate maintenance. It is in need of urgent repair due to the safety issues present.

  • It would appear that the road is being repaired piece meal. Some areas have had work done, it would appear a temporary fix, other areas still have significant pot holes. Be careful!
