  • Agree with the above comments, the road is very bad and there are numerous deep pot holes towards Sedgemoor Way. Cars are swerving out of the way and pedestrians are struggling to cross the road as cars are driving erratically to avoid the pot holes and and damage over the speedbumps. The road does not look too bad but cars are violently thrown about so there is a significant hazard which really needs to be addressed sooner than in 6 months.
