Fix the potholes, dont keep painting white lines..!

Over the last 2 years, potholes have become terrible due in part to the street being used as a diversion route twice while nearby main roads were closed. Over this period, the Council has made no road repairs, but has instead painted the white lines on the parking bays 3 times.! Come on, repair the road..!

  • Guys came and made a half hearted effort filling holes on half the street towards Dalkeith Rd, but the tarmac wasn't packed down properly and is already breaking up.

  • The response by the Council was quite rapid, but the quality of the repair was poor and will require to be redone within 12 months. I'm afraid it was a 'bish, bash, bosh" effort and should have been better.
