There is a sunken repair to the Wendover Road carriageway which is creating a long pothole situation. It is located approximately 80 south of the Bedgrove roundabout. Whilst the repair is across the whole road, it has sunk mostly on the south bound carriageway. The issue is that when large HGV's cross this pothole, it creates significant vibration to the houses around the pothole. This is causing damage to those houses (including mine). The whole road need to be complete and thoroughly repaired.
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.
