As residents we're all becoming increasingly cross at the failure to properly address the dangerous potholes and degraded road surface in Thornhill down as far as the start of the bungalows. I and my wife have *no choice* but to subject our cars to these potholes several times a day, every day of the week, every day of the year and it is taking it's toll on our cars, on us and those of our vistors.

It is a disgrace that the original 1940s pre-cast concrete sections are showing through all the way along the road - it looks more like a disused runway than a residential street.

As others have pointed out, multiple patching is *not* fixing this problem, it needs to be properly filled, sealed and re-surfaced. Other parts of the village have been re-surfaced in recent years for considerably lesser problems, why is Thornhill never considered for this?

Please fix this.
