  • I have noticed in the last 2 days that some tarmac has been used to fill some of the potholes and uneven surface on Hayes Road. Can you please advise when the proper resurfacing work will take place (as detailed above) which in May stated would be "in the next six months"? The state of Hayes Road upto and including the entrance to Foxholes close is shocking, and people now maneuver over both sides of the road to avoid the dips and holes, so this is now a road hazard.

  • Thank you for your further comments. With regard to the general condition of the road itself; we do understand that it could benefit from resurfacing works in the future. Regrettably, this will not take place during this current financial year due to the budget for the scheme list being fully allocated. Please be assured; however, that we will include this for consideration in future years’ funding. Until then, any safety defects that are identified on the carriageway in the meantime, will be safely patched and repaired to keep the roads serviceable.
