A couple of months ago some water mains were repaired, afterwards, being replaced by poorer quality tarmac than was currently there. It is outside the Gregg's / santander and is within the bus stop and lane of direction of traffic to town. It's a problem as any heavy vehicle (of which there are many it being a busy bus / coach route) which crosses this small trench makes the whole building shake and could damage the building (and all other buildings around it)

  • It'a much worse now - at least 3 or 4 cm deep, but with the normal road surface not giving way thus now creates a lip. Cars are trying to drive around it, will cause an accident.

  • This trench/pot hole almost threw me off my motorcycle, this is dangerous and needs urgent attention
