Huge potholes. You haven’t resurfaced the inside lane. Potholes have been here for nearly 18 months now. Shocking dereliction of duty. Houses shake when buses and lorries thunder by. People have been injured by flying debris. Cars have been damaged. These potholes are right in front of 1172 and 1174 Eastern Avenue. Your teams have left emergency cones right in front of these potholes (look at the picture). They obviously know the potholes are a problem that’s why they’ve left these. Resurface the road asap. Your teams have not completed the job.
