The surface of Little Horwood red has been poor for over 24 months. With the constant buildings works and heavy traffic is has deteriorated further. The constant temporary repair of the potholes indicates there is a more serious underlining issue with the base construction of the road in relation to the traffic volume and type using the road. The stone clippings that are created every time a pot hole is created, cause minor damage to cars parked along the road and surface contamination that cause be a slip hazard to pedestrians. The worst area is from the village green to the new housing on the south east side of the village St Jamesā€™s Vale. Before winter arrives and exacerbates the issue please plan in to undertake the necessary repairs for a longer term solution.
