Utter disgrace

From one end to the other this road is a total disgrace. It's been partially wrecked by Severn Trent who several years ago cut the huge channel down the road. It was a hopeless reinstatement with the wrong materials and not correctly completed. The council should have sat on them to fix it but as usual they let them get away with it. Now it's "out of warranty" and it's the councils responsibility and they have no money.

The whole road is a dangerous disgrace. If I ran a company on that estate and received a fat rates bill I'd withhold payment.

It's been like this for many years. Get it fixed!

  • Utter joke, no action whatever. The reinstatement’s are of dreadful quality the whole length of this shocking road. Derbys worse road by a long stretch.

  • No response, no attempt. Disgusting dangerous surface wrecked by Severn Trent. They could have fixed it for free but no, now DCC have no money so the road remains terrible. I did have someone contact me from DCC “which part of Ascot drive are you referring to? I almost fell off my chair “how’s about all of it?
