There is a large number of potholes and broken areas around ironworks. There is missing tar around the dropped kerbs where they exist. The road travels between earth banks where there are also many potholes. The banks have been washed down into the road & eroded by large vehicles. This makes the roadway narrower than the underlying tar. It needs scraping back to its original margins and the mud removing.
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.
