  • This drain is really bad now unable to take a photo as too dangerous to stop. The tarmac has worn away and is exposing the sharp metal square hole. Cars are having to swerve round on the wrong side of the road. Had a near miss with an oncoming car this week who was avoiding drain.

  • Pothole ....its more like a trench at this stage. It caused the plate behind my disc to come off, surprised my alloy wasn't damaged! Disgrace that this road is still in this condition. It was reported last Feb 24 and nothing happened.

  • We are working with our contractor to arrange the required works. This will involve a road closure and diversion, which is being organised. We appreciate your patience in the meantime.

  • I'll believe it when I see it. So many broken promises and time wasting from various parties. Hang your heads in shame, all involved!

  • In no way could that be construed as rude. The problem is DANGEROUS and has been outstanding for years. I rest my case.

  • Not at 4pm yesterday it hadn't. What happened to our road closure 4 a proper fix? Still waiting! Lots of white paint round the holes now though, that doesn't constitute a fix to me!
