Hi a large pothole I reported previously has been filled in today, thank you, however the potholes just in front of this pothole which I also referenced in previous report have not! They are clearly visible and large and dangerous. Unless there is a practical reason which is not obvious why this is the case it seems ridiculous that a contractor has come out filled in one pothole and not the others only a metre or two in front. This seems to be a complete waste of time and money? Please send someone back to fix the road properly. Thanks
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.
