This pothole has been repaired by the council recently and has opened up again. Visually it doesn't look that severe, but those living near are affected by house vibrations, windows not closing properly, cracks in walls due to over 800 busses and other heavy traffic passing every week and hitting the pothole with their heavy wheels. This road is too narrow for such heavy vehicle using it constantly and the council has ignored emails, letters, and continual phone calls. All emails were conveniently passed on to London Transport who answered each one and stressed that they have been given permission for busses to use this route by the council, so its the council responsibility to put roads in order. Exact location is outside 114 Grosvenor Crescent Hillingdon UB109EX. Many thanks Lucia Braithwaite
This has been incredibly effective and I thank you for it. The pothole was first addressed quite some time back after months and months of phone calls and letters and visits to the council. Not long after the first repair it started cracking again. The impact on properties is horrendous as we have over 840 busses per week passing, and if there are cars parked on either side of the road every bus and heavy vehicle hits the pothole causing house vibrations and damage to properties. I and other neighbours don't think the road is wide enough and able to accommodate such large heavy vehicles. At this stage pothole has been repaired, but due to the heavy constant traffic rads still shake, sealant in windows is getting constantly repaired, and cracks are appearing in walls. Neighbours have complained that windows don't close as they should though are reasonably new. London Transport at least answered all my letters which the council conveniently passed on to them, but as they explained, they were given permission by the council to use the route. Thank you again for your update. L.B.
State changed to: Fixed
