Multiple failures stretching over 100 meters of the road on both sides of the carriageway. Attempts have been made in the past to patch them poorly however due to the depth of them they open up again. The entire section needs replacing due to the dangerous nature of where they are as this seriously impacts ability to brake

    So a team appeared today and set up temp traffic lights. “At last” thought - BUT NO! This was the newest in a long line of pathetic repair attempts. Didn’t even cover all the road surface that was damaged.

    Why are these piecemeal repair attempts still being done and wasting our money? The exploratory investigation a couple of months ago found that the whole sub-surface of the carriageway is defective and a full excavation and relaying of both the sub-surface and road surface is required. Or did they only tell me that and not include it in their report???
