  • I would like to update that since the initial report nothing has been done. Living on this road I have to deal with these pot holes on a daily basis and they are potentially dangerous. Some parts of the road they are unavoidable and are doing damage to cars. I have even had the idea of plugging the holes in myself it’s that bad. Could we possibly get this issue looked at and sorted as soon as possible, before it gets any worse.

  • Although some potholes were marked for filling, between the time of the initial assessment and being repaired the road surface has, due to back weather and usage deteriorated further.

    Potholes that were previously ignored have now grown in size and are in need of immediate attention.

    Specifically outside of and between numbers 31, 33, 35 and 41 College Rd.

  • It’s like an obstacle course trying to dodge the pot holes. We saw some men working the other day but only fixed 2 or 3 of them outside number 31. I think it’s a case of needing to shut the road and going all out to fix them. Cars are being damaged and I’m surprised their hasn’t been many punctures.
