  • Still at least one major pothole remains now after the frost has ended, and is getting bigger as trucks and cars continue to go into it. It presents a danger to drivers and cyclists.

  • Thanks for the update but I’m sorry, the pothole has not been fixed. A cyclist went off the road the other day and hit an elderly lady. It’s very dangerous as the pothole is deep and right in the bend and vehicles and cyclists don’t see it at night. Please please address this and fix the major and surrounding smaller potholes ASAP. Many thanks
