    This has been getting worse by the week - poor repairs AROUND the hole were totally inadequate. we are now getting huge stones hitting our car and on drive - this is a busy road with constant weekday traffic - 3 schools create a lot of cars - school buses, lorries and a fire station use this road - please sort out asap -outside berrys and 57/59 headlands

    Please sort this out properly for once. The money you’ve wasted bodging it up several times already could have been reduced if you would just do it properly ONCE. It’s dangerous to those of us on two wheels and cars are firing stones into pedestrians as they walk past.

    So someone had been and sprayed nice squares around individual holes - why not dig up the whole area and do the job properly ? when this approach was taken last time, all it did was paper over the cracks and new holes appeared next to the badly filled ones ???? my entire drive is filled with rocks of various sizes from 5in stones to layers of shingle sprayed every single time a car / school bus/ fire engine drives past . if my car gets damaged with all the loose stones flying about , who do i contact for insurance purposes please?
