It looks like it’s widening

Spotted yesterday and it’s a busy junction Buckhurst and bramblewood. It looks like it could be disardrous if allowed to continue to grow.

    Dear Cllr Colburn,

    Following this enquiry I visited the location stated this morning and have arranged for a temporary repair to be carried out tomorrow.

    Due to the relative shallowness, small diameter and position in the carriageway of the breakout it is in my opinion not likely to cause danger to pedestrians or other road users and as such does not warrant a full permanent repair at this time.

    Regular inspections are carried on this road and any deterioration should it occur will be addressed with a full repair within agreed timescales.
