  • Hi, Thank you for repairing some of the holes on Chester Rd in Wellingborough. The ones that were deepest do look better and are filled, but as you con see from the pictures here, the repair leaves a lot to be desired. None of the repairs have been properly sealed. This happened before when many of these holes were filled a couple of years ago, and within a short time the in-fill had broken up again. As you can also see many other patches of cracking on the road haven’t been addressed at all. Surely this is then likely to lead to further road breakdown. It’s got to be more cost effective to at least repair large sections of the road in broad strips or completely, rather than these poor and costly spot repairs. Can you please investigate further.
