Outside Number 19 and 20 Denham Close there are huge potholes that are causing damage to wheels and kids falling off bikes as they hit the potholes.
This issue has been like this now for at least 7 months. Down the end of the road, there are a load of other potholes so this whole road needs to be replaced with proper work done to stop the roads from making huge potholes. Can you please look at doing something about this as the man in number 20 is disabled and this is damaging his car? Thanks David Caldwell
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 creates 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.
