  • Still not fixed. Probably not even looked at. Hope the water helps with an indication of how deep this is. At least stick some cold lay tarmac in it, please.

  • Just confirm..this pavement collapsed because the contractors who fixed a street light did not back fill underneath the pavement properly..

  • It has taken months to get to this stage...but..This work was carried out last night to an absolutely bad quality. The guys were there at 3:03 am and left less that 20 minutes later. In that time they did a poor job leaving the surface uneven. If this is where my taxes are going then we are stuffed as a country!..These workers did not care at all!!!! Please send out you quality control officers to see the work..also I have film of them working as they were under my CCTV..

  • Looking much better now and far safer than it was before repair.
