This pot hole has been made by cars using our drive as a safe way to turn round after dropping children off to the school at the end of the road. Apart from making it difficult turning into our drive, it also means that cars swerve out to avoid it which makes it dangerous for children walking up the road to the school as there is no pavement. This hole has been there for about two months
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.
