  • Over a year on and it's still not fixed, so much so when I had to go to hospital by Ambulance I knew exactly where I was when the Ambulance lurched due to the hole!

  • Some of the surface has been replaced, but the initial subsidence that causes the buses air suspension to oscillate and pound the road apart hasn't been touched. Clever contractor method to ensure ongoing work?
