Extensive damage to road surface now damaging vehicles wheels and suspension. Whilst the situation was reported back in January, your scheduled repair of 26 weeks is simply not acceptable. The road surface has now broken further, causing extensive and costly damage to vehicles. You need to urgently reinspect the damage, and expedite the repair.
