Long deep trench has now formed from the junction of Turnfurlong Lane and Camborne Avenue about half the width of the road. This affects the traffic travelling along Camborne avenue as well as those turning right out of Turnfurlong Lane. This along with the pot holes that I reported some time ago, two of which were badly filled and the rest ignored now make the whole area ridiculously dangerous for all road users, including pedestrians and cyclists as well as car users. It about time your engineers assessed the area properly and repaired it to a standard that our taxes have paid for.
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.
