Last year a hole was filled in in the middle of the road outside 26 Celtic Avenue. It started to sink again a few months ago and has now reached a point where it needs to be looked at and refilled in.

  • Someone came and dug up the road at the end of last week, there were a couple of contractors on Monday and possibly Tuesday... it nobody has been since. So now there is a rather large hole about 2m by 1m right in the middle of the road. All of the barriers have fallen down in the wind and it’s probably a hazard especially to children as this is a cut through road to Highfield School.

  • Still no one has been to deal with this, how long will there be a hole in the road for?

  • We have investigated this report and found the issue to be the responsibility of Thames Water. We have therefore referred the enquiry to Thames Water. Future issues with Thames Water infrastructure can be reported directly to Thames Water via: 16266.htm

    State changed to: third party responsibility

  • So are you going to chase them as to why there has been a hole in the road for over two weeks now? It may be a Thames Water issue but surely you have a duty or care to ensure that these issues are fixed in a timely manner? Residents in the area already spoke with Thames Water about a drop in pressure about a year ago and that still hasn’t been resolved, problem area for that issue was around 3 metres away from the issue now. Potentially connected? Surely if it is in the middle of a road (and not on private property) then an individual in the the area should not be expected to chase this up themself?

  • Still no update as to when this will be rectified! This is appalling! Five weeks now that this giant hole has been left in the road. It’s unacceptable.
