Potholes plus water leak

Greetings, The road that takes authorised vehicles to Woodside Grange, through the new Clayton Mills housing development (and on which hundreds of people cycle and walk to Hassock station) has two problems. Firstly, there has been a water leak that has got progressively worse over the last few weeks: what started as a trickle running down the path to the stream has now become a muddy stream. Second, this water seems to have caused potholes and one large hole/subsidence. I am worried that these are causing a hazard to pedestrians and, when winter comes, will freeze over and cause serious injury. Indeed, the slippery, muddy water at present could lead to injury. Can this be looked at urgently? Thanks in advance, Mark.

  • Someone has placed a wooden board over the affected area and the water leak seems to have stopped (no, it wasn't rain!). A permanent fix for the large hole/subsidence would be good, considering this is a public footpath. Best, Mark.

  • This problem now appears to have been fixed - the large pothole has now been filled, though I don't think the workmen involved would call it their finest ever work. Still, well done council.

    State changed to: Fixed
