These potholes have been growing daily for weeks and in some areas cross the whole of the carriageway. They are so deep and wide they are extremely dangerous and could cause a traffic accident. If a car is coming in the opposite direction it is impossible to avoid them if cars behind do not slow down. Some (not all) have been marked with white paint for weeks but still have not been repaired. I think these potholes now pose a potential danger to life for drivers using Blind Lane.
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.
