I reported a problem last month about dangeourous deep pot holes and uneven surface on Cumberland close with ref #2093619
This complaint was closed and it apparently shows that problem has been resolved, however nothing has been done on this yet. Problem is so dangerous that it has damaged tyres of my car as well as suspensions. I will be claiming for the damage from council.
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.
