Highways have been repairing the potholes recently further down Mill Lane but the potholes in the Y-shape turn in from Doddington Road have not been attended to.

  • Further images showing worsening condition of tarmac. The surface is largely made up of previous pothole repairs completed over a period of time. Its apparent enough now that a re-instatement of whole Y-section surface is needed as more crumbling is taking place. The Y section is subject to daily use by vehicles (often commercial) from Doddington Road for U turns, as a layby.
