Back to all reports

Several pot holes in a short stretch of a very narrow lane. All about 3 or 4 inches deep and between 2 feet and 1 foot long.

These potholes have been filled several times but soon recurr. Although several lanes nearby have been marked for repair this area has not. They are a short way South West of the main gate to Whin Yeats farm.

  • The problem still remains. A neighbour who also reported the problem has been told by the highways dept that the work has been added to the future programme. I have had no response.

  • It took several weeks for the potholes to receive attention. They have now been filled with cold tarmac and I don't expect the repair to last long. The lane is used daily by farm tractors and their big tyres soon break up the tarmac.

    State changed to: Fixed
