  • The damage to this portion of road is now extremely dangerous on the portion between the junction and gates to the carpark, to the point that damage to a vehicle after driving over the holes approaching the junction from Eydon has been witnessed. The updates above state it would be fixed within 4 months with a deadline of 7 May, then within 1 month on 17 April. This time period has now been exceeded.

  • The corner of the road is in really poor condition and pot holes are also appearing towards the junction with Eyden Road.

    At least one cyclist has fallen as a result of the poor surface, damaging their wrist and grazing their face.

  • Still not fixed. It's been 2 months since the update that said "Work instructed and will be undertaken within 1 month." and over 5 months since the defects were originally reported.
