Hi,

Many potholes on Church Lane are causing big bang noise when Grab Trucks (1000s per day) pass by.

These trucks create more noise when they are unladen.

That is just small problem, these speeding trucks drive flat on one speed may be 60MPH.

The Church lane is messy, not resurfaced for long time. Many schools in the street, dangerous to pedestrians.

Reported speeding to police too. BOS-59237-20-4300-B20.

Can this be fixed on a priority basis. Also can i request a call on 07795909111? Thanks

    Road Maintenance When is the road re-surfaced? When is a re-surfaced scheduled for? What is your normal frequency for a road like this?

    Speed controls? What is the speed limit on this road (Church Lane)? What is the size of the heaviest or largest truck that can pass on this road? Have you had any disrepair claims in the last 10 years in this road? What measures are in place to limit access and speed of the heavy trucks? Do you know the what is the expected volumes of traffic? Did you recently find huge jump in the volumes?

    Quality Checks? When was the road checked last? Please can you share any report, which may have been prepared at the time?

    May I kindly as you to answer the following questions? There are still markings on the road, but repairs have not been carried out? May I know why? Have you measured the impact and noise in decibels to quantify the problem? You mentioned in your response that the burden-of-proof lies with the reporter? I believe the Highways is accountable and responsible for any potential dangers. The road is owned by Highways and therefore I personally think burden-of-proof doesn’t arise.

    In any case, it’s such a simple report, which can be addressed by a simple work order to fill the hole. Instead of raising a work order, do you think it is wise to use scare mongering techniques like burden-of-proof for unrelated items of the report. In a nutshell, please can you provide why the road is not a candidate for re-surfacing? What inspection was carried out after the repairs have been carried out. you can see the repairs were carried out for a name sake with no real change. Are you aware of schools in Church Lane and that proposal to to block parents to use Moat Drive for school dorps, forcing them to use Church Lane? These pictures were taken just 50- meters apart.

    Hi, I've been reporting this location and i was told the repairs will be carried out at some time. I'm happy with your statements that you can't say any timeline. The flood scene witnessed by neighbours. This can only make the matters worse with heavy truck traffic. Thanking you,
