  • The pothole/road subsidence is getting worse. It concerns me that if a vehicle's nearside wheels dropped into it, it would roll onto its side and into the ditch. A sports car could easily scrape its chassis against the uneven road surface.

  • Following a motorcyclist yesterday whilst travelling towards Roade from Hartwell he slid off the edge of this ridge and nearly came off his vehicle. This road condition is very dangerous.

  • This subsidence is getting critical. A cyclist or motorcyclist will be thrown from their bike. Cars will be badly damaged at the very least. The only way to avoid is to swerve towards the centre of the carriageway towards oncoming traffic and you can only do this only if you know it is there. Serious problem needs fixing now.

The road edge has been compacted with stone and Tarmaced over the weekend, If this is not the case I can only assume that there is another section to what has been done. I will leave you my contact number as I can arrange to meet you at the location should there be further problems. Regards. Elisa 07595087102
