Just opposite the entrance to Nuffield Health gym there is a really big pothole that extends from the side of the road to where your wheels go. If there is anything coming the other way you must come to a full stop as the hole is large, deep and has a jagged edge that Will immediately puncture the tyre. It really needs urgent attention as this stretch is not lit and this hole can be easily missed at night until the damage is done.
This has been passed to the local area technician to investigate the enquiry/issue regarding a pothole/road surface.
During winter months we receive a very high number of reports regarding potholes or a poor road surface, it's easy to assume that potholes are formed due to roads being poorly maintained but that is not usually the case. There are many factors that can cause potholes, particularly during the winter months when water seeps in through cracks in the road surface, collecting underneath and when the water freezes, it expands and forces up the road surface in through cracks in the road surface.
Our priority is always the safety of road users, so in some cases during busy periods a permanent repair is not always possible immediately. However, temporary repairs are a way to ensure the area is safe until such times as we can return to make a permanent repair.
