  • Why don't you repair this? Additional, the road is poor with sunken drain covers and poor kerbside surface. This pothole hasny even been marked! Get on with it?

  • URGENT: Large and deep pothole which has been present for over a week. Most vehicles will drive through it unless they swerve in to the oncoming side of the road. This has been reported multiple times, and no action has been taken. This WILL be damaging vehicles. Probably causing hundreds of pounds worth of damage every hour that it continues to be ignored. Don't send someone to paint a line around it - get it filled in or covered. TODAY. It wouldn't take 10 mins to throw some tar in the hole, or put a thick metal plate over it, until it can be repaired properly. Surely this would be a better use of taxpayer's money than paying compensation for hundreds of damaged vehicles?

  • This pothole is very deep and not obvious until too late. It needs immediate attention, and while I appreciate that work has been scheduled within the month it needs to be scheduled much sooner. Barriers and lights are required to prevent a serious accident.

  • This pot hole is very deep and so dangerous now. A few cars have had damage to tyre's. Something needs to be done ASAP before there is an accident. I have reported this before, I even put cones to try and warn people about how deep it is.
