  • Not great. The road is still in a terrible condition for anything other than off-road vehicles with nice, squidgy tyres and soft suspension. Hovercraft might do well along there though, but I am unsure of their road legal status.

  • Still as bad, bumpy and broken as ever it was. Ploughed tarmac is a good description of parts of it.

  • My experience of getting the problem fixed is non-existent. As the road is as bad as it ever was. In fact, I am close to giving up and buying a motocross bike instead. Long suspension travel is the only way forward now i think.

  • Given up waiting now. I have driven on back streets in Thailand that have a better surface. There is no point ever expecting it to be fixed no I do not think.

  • No. No. No. No. No. I am becoming convinced that this is no longer classed as a road. Not in the normal sense of the word at least. The surface is broken most of the way along, and while the breaks aren't deep, they do throw two-wheelers around either trying to avoid them or getting caught out by yet another rut. Also the speed bumps are disintegrating around the edges. All in all, an almost post-apocalyptic version of a road, one where I keep imagining to see Max Rockatansky chasing down the Toecutter...

  • January 30th 2017 this road was reported. It's May 2018 now... Barrs Court Road is still like a ploughed tarmac field rather than a road. There are numerous holes appearing on what is left of the (ironically named) "Speed" bumps. I honestly have given up any hope of ever seeing this road repaired. I am starting to wonder what FixMyStreet is actually for, other than to read other comments about the shocking state of roads in Hereford...
