Electricity cables covered in rubber have been placed across the road with no warning signs. Impossible to see in the dark and been placed near 2 large potholes making this section of the road a danger to all road users. Requires urgent inspection to repair the potholes and remove unauthorised cables which appear to be used for an inflatable on private land.
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.
