The pothole has been filled a few times, however it has not seemed to solve the issue. The tarmac does not hold and now the pothole is creeping from the kerbside to the middle of the roundabout. I can see someone getting badly hurt, and appreciate your time frames however this needs to be looked at asap please. Thank you.
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.

We have completed our inspection of the issue and have made arrangements for it to be resolved within two working days.
