Further to my recent report, your three month repair target is woefully short of the mark.

This is now 19cm deep, to the 5cm layer of silt below the water.

This is a lethal defect that must be made safe immediately.

It's on the inside corner of a 60mph road, cars have been damaged already, the possibility of a fatality is high!
