Small 2-3" hole appeared in pavement. Tarmac looks fragile around it.. Put 12" stick into it and it didn't reach bottom..

Only noticed this yesterday but tarmac surrounding hole seems thin and as if it may break up into a larger hole..

(COULD ALSO DO WITH MORE TARMAC ON MILLFIELD RISE ROAD. At present, more concrete than tarmac!!!)

  • Still open, via questionnaire, 09:44, Tue 10 September 2019

  • PROBLEM STILL NOT FIXED. A neighbour placed a cone over the hole but needed it so I have put a thin stick down the hole and it supports a child’s toy cone. A child could run and fall into it if the surrounding tarmac gives way which is likely if weight is put on it. An animals could get its leg stuck down it.

  • Still not mended and second cone disappeared. if tarmac breaks through with weight of person, that person will get hurt.

  • O/s 12/14 Hole in pavement is hollow underneath and tarmac could collapse. Needs filling and is a trip hazard!! Emergency repair need!! Before someone has a accident there!!
