Long pothole - danderous for cyclists in the dark

Fell off my bike because I didn't spot it in the dark, have reported potholes on the Midford Lane before, but they don't get fixed.......its difficult to be polite in this circumstance if you think the local council Wiltshire (?) ignore you if you report anything?

  • This problem was fixed quickly, but the developers ignored other similar potholes on the same road. Unfortunately because this is Wiltshire CC this 'report' went nowhere as Wiltshire CC don't accept reports from 3rd part sources like FixMyStreet. I also think FixMyStreet may have mapped this location into the wrong LA area i.e. B&NES, as I got an email back from them to say it wasn't their problem.

    State changed to: Fixed

  • Fixed but another one forming immediately to the west; this is Wiltshire, so fix my street doesn't get reported through to them
