Multiple pot holes and broken road surface

Reported in the Carriageway defect category by C Smith at 22:06, Tuesday 15 January 2019

The road surface is completely broken and potted in a number of areas before, after and to the side of the speed bump. This section has been patched before to a very poor standard as the jagged holes and cracks have again appeared and have been in this state for many weeks. Cars could crack an axle, particularly if they were to hit one of the cracks badly, but a person would break a leg a cyclist clipping one badly injured or killed. A 4-5 meter section needs to be removed completely and properly re-surfaced, along with the dangerous and inapparopriately positioned speed bump (or yellow lines introduced if it stays and the white line of the driveway removed) to stop cars from being forced to swerve in to the other lane. This really is a serious injury waiting to happen and a dreadful and short lived earlier ‘repair’.
