Heading away from Stewkley just before the village sign of Littlecote. there are dozens of deep and dangerous potholes simular to this all along the stretch of road, just shy of Littlecote in particular. They have been marked with spray paint for at least 2 months so have been assuming they were going to be fixed. Sadly have been unable to avoid on this occasion due to a car coming in the other direction. Has resulted in a tyre blow out.
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.
