I am unable to get out of the drive because of the size and depth of the hole. I have had to put a board over the holes in order to exit without damaging my car. However, because of the volume of construction traffic allowed, unmonitored, up the lane, the board simply gets snapped. Notably, the road was resurfaced last year. I had to park off the lane for four days. Remarkably, they failed to resurface the section where this pothole is plus the adjacent section of road, which is now virtually undriveable.
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.

The entry point to my property is simply getting worse, with the potholes getting bigger and the road surface deteriorating further. I would be grateful if this could be fixed so that i can get into my property safely.
