Pothole has re appeared, just a few weeks after being "repaired". Just the right size to have a cyclist /motorcyclist off.

  • Getting more severe by the hour now. It's filling with water crumbling each time a vehicle goes through it. Rocks /stones are being thrown up across the road and into other vehicles. Traffic moves through here up to twice the legal posted 30 limit and being adjacent to a driveway and public footpath, multiple hazards are becoming more of a concern.

  • The pothole is serious again guys. See attached photo from this morning. It's not just a danger to passing traffic, it's also next to a public footpath and is a trip hazard. No pavement/sidewalk so I hate to think of potential consequences. Also, it's a real pain for my wife and I to reverse into our drive at night whilst dealing with speeding (yes, I do mean speeding) traffic and avoid wheel and tyre damage from these craters. Please spend a little time to get the job done right, not the 20 minutes it took last time in the dark to "bodge" it. It's a waste of time, money and effort to rush a job....

  • Even the pedestrians who use this footpath are complaining now. Rocks from the canyons are being thrown into the path of oncoming traffic and I'm getting bored with clearing the rubble from my driveway and having to avoid the craters when reversing into my driveway. It's especially difficult at night, in the dark, with following traffic. Whilst I'm moaning about this issue.....the whole road is falling apart down here, again. It's a real challenge to drive through the village now. It's not possible to drive safely now, from Wingrave to the B488. There's so many safety related issues here, too numerous to mention. A proper survey is needed, urgently.

  • I thank you for repairing "the crater" but sadly you missed a bit. Well, quite a lot really. There's a massive amount of trucks passing through here at the moment (at excessive speed) and the noise is horrendous as their multiple axles hit the holes next to the ones repaired. It won't be long before this little lot opens up into another lunar landscape........ I'll update you regularly in their progress.
