  • The problem has existed here for months. I reported it first in December 2017, and with every passing day and vehicle the problem gets worse as the road surface deteriorates. West Sussex Highways responded on 5 December saying they would monitor it, but rather than returning every few weeks to check, wouldn't it be more straightforward just to fix it? One day someone will be injured or a vehicle or bicycle will be damaged because of this, and then WSH will be liable.

  • WSH stated that it would not be fixed until it was more than 40mm deep. There are now several potholes, all of which are more than 60mm deep, and still no fix. It is now nearly four months since I first reported this. Other roads in the area are also degrading, and soon it will be impossible to navigate around all the surface damage.

  • Took months and whilst they filled the two larger potholes they left a slightly smaller one undone. Maybe the council are rationing tarmac but it would have made sense to fix them all at the same time!

    State changed to: Fixed
