Our house is on the corner of Humfrey Lane and Vyse Road. The surface of the road in Vyse Road next to the house is deteriorating in several small areas. There have been several very minor repairs but these have not fixed the problem.

The noise in the rooms adjacent to the road is particularly bad with constant thuds heard as vehicles travel over this area, especially as many cars tend to speed up the hill from church street, hitting the bad patch of road somewhat harder causing more noise in the house. Please could there be some proper resurfacing of this small area?

  • Thank you for your enquiry and for bringing this matter to our attention. We would also like to apologise for the delay in responding to your concerns. We understand that you have concerns about the condition of Vyse Road; specifically, that you feel that the road is in a poor state with multiple potholes. Whilst we appreciate and sympathise with your comments, we have carried out a review of this matter and can confirm that there are no immediate safety concerns relating to this issue that warrant further investigation or repair at this time. However, please be assured that we will continue to monitor the area as part of our routine inspections. 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.

    State changed to: No further action
