Amount of loose stones since resurfacing is horrendous, i am aware you have 20mph signs up warning of potential skid and i know you are not responsible for someone overtaking at excessive speed causing my car to have a smashed windscreen and lots of other chips from the loose stones ,but you are responsible for the resurfacing which i feel is absolutely pathetic due to the excessive loose stones that have been left causing damage to my vehicle
Thank you for reporting a fault. Officers will now investigate the concerns and this may take up to 5 working days. If you believe that your concerns are urgent then please phone us.

Dear Mr Wright, Thank you for your enquiry regarding the surface dressing works that are taking place on Park Farm Way. Surface dressing is an approved road surfacing method which significantly extends the lifespan of the road and increases skid resistance. Once the surfacing has been installed the road will be swept after approx. 24 hours/48 hours and then again after 7 days. Road markings will then be reinstated. The A509 has received its first sweep with the second sweep due to be completed on Tuesday 30th August.Regarding the damage to your car, if you wish to make a claim please direct this to and they will be able to assist you further.
