Your repair team came out today, neatly patched several holes at the top of the road (Crick end) and also repaired a few on the gated section through the park land BUT LEFT TWO VERY DEEP AND LONG HOLES halfway between! See attached pictures of one , I have placed my face mask alongside for scale. The second hole is longer and wider (my phone went flat so I don’t have a picture but if you need one I can help). I understand your limitations and have read your guidelines but for them to leave the two WORST HOLES is crazy! Recently an older couple in their car hit one of these and burst a tyre. The outcome could have been worse were they going at a faster speed! PLEASE SORT THIS! It’s a grotty lane but it’s the only way to our homes! There are 8 households that live along here and we all have children and young drivers. Thank you!
