This problem has been reported since April and has still not been resolved. Half the road is covered in potholes and surface break up. Multiple reports have been reported to and nothing has been done. It’s very clear that your failing to comply with your Highways policy in check in the road is 12 times a year. This is becoming extremely dangerous for drivers as people are having to swerve around onto the other side of the road to miss the poorly maintained road.
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.
