Today the road surface on Gladstone Rise was microsurfaced to improve the road quality but they did not do the bottom part of the road. We live at 21 Gladstone Rise and believe the road to be adopted by the council (this was in the property deeds and documents when we purchased the house). The part of the road we are referring to is to the left at the bottom of the road outside number 21 & 19 Gladstone Rise. I look forward to hearing from you soon, kind regards The Zacharek's
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.
