Apparent 'fixed' pathway outside 145 Dunkirk

Thank you for eventually coming to repair half of the damage, though the tarmac laid is already beginning to break away due to the rough edging. It is also poorly laid, with parts pressing agaisnt the fence, and also falling through.

The area behind the communications box (which was the first reason for contact) has been ignored - and images of this lack of repair was updated on the original report. This report has now been closed - hence the addition of yet another request for pathway repair.

I have once again added photographs.

*When is the loose and falling tarmac around the communication to be replaced? We have lumps of old pathway and tarmac falling through the gap into our garden. As noted before, we are unable to correctly repair fence until the exterior has been made good.

  • These images show the area of fixing - the finish is really loose and tbh, I've seen better laid tarmac by dodgy contractors!

    The second image is from the private side of the fence and you can clearly see the newly squashed surface pushing and falling through.

    The third image is the corner edge of the tarmac squashed against the fence base and already loose...

  • These images show loose areas of the freshly laid tarmac, and the squashing of the substance to the gate. *I had already tidied up the paving slab edging.

  • The first two images include the areas that were missed - the corner of Ise View and the the left edging of the property beyond the communications box.

    The third image is like the post above, rough already lifting edges.

    As this repair took less than 40 minutes, it is not surprising that the completed job is faulty and looks terrible.

    One wonders how long it will take for the weeds to repair at the edging again!

  • No further action customer to provide restraint prior to any further repairs.
