  • This hasn’t been fixed the council contractors only put more tarmac on small patch onto of tarmac that’s already destroyed. Thames water are coming to dig up pavement soon anyway.

    But nothing has been done about the bush which is causing the problem and has grown under the pavement stop sending cowboys and send a professional.
