  • This hole needs filling urgently...It's an anglian water main trench that was put in many years ago. This hole is quite deep, and will cause serious damage to a vehicles suspension. It's being made worse, by the heavy and large HGV's . This was reported nearly 3 months ago, and has got worse, and deeper.

  • Lorries are continually hitting this pothole which has now deepened and loose tarmac is being thrown onto the path. The outer edges are now breaking down

  • You have completed other pothole repairs of less importance in a significantly quicker time than the 6 months time frame you confirmed 7th Jan. You are also aware Appletree Road is a busy route to the industrial estate vehicles are now swerving to avoid this pothole and when they do hit it debris it frequently thrown across the public footpath. The evidence is their to see Have you actually inspected this ? to confirm its insignificance or do we wait for an accident to happen. Recent potholes on the Culworth Road by Griffin pub were filled quite quickly and were by no means as large and deep Why? have you changed the criteria for prioritising pothole repairs?
