  • Thank you for your prompt response. However, I do feel that to wait 5 months, ("This should hopefully be completed within five months’ time") that puts us into October - hardly an auspicious time for road repairs, is a little too long to wait for this to be resolved particularly as this is now creating a hazard to all road users but particularly those on two wheels.
