Potholes, an update

Thank you all once more for a splendid response and all the feedback on the worst potholes and also for the many expressions of support and appreciation for everything we are trying to do. We have received about fifty emails with reports on at least twenty six different problems.

Two recurring significant road safety issues have been raised concerning problems for cyclists and the increased accident risks from cyclists and drivers having to manoeuvre round potholes, into the middle or the wrong side of often narrow roads and doing so ’blind’ to oncoming  traffic. Two other recurring themes are the dreadful state of specific roads which need resurfacing as the only value-for-money remedy and obviously sub-standard repairs not lasting and having to be done again. There have also been complaints about reports to the council being repeatedly ignored.
