Rookery Lane hasn't been properly maintained for years. It carries more traffic than one would expect due to it being used as a regular cut through. The road is generally in a very poor state of repair from the A153 to the bend just before the village. It has been marked up for repair at least twice to my knowledge in the last 3 years but still remains unresolved. These potholes have been gradually getting worse over the last 3-4 months. There is now a significant danger to cyclists (risk of falling), motorcyclists (risk of falling/dismount) and car drivers (swerve issue). They are also on a blind bend. They are impossible to see at night as there is no street lighting. Not visible when road floods due to rain. Danger of severe tyre and wheel damage. Needs urgent repairs and 'maintaining'. Thank you.

  • Rookery Lane in Sudbrook has got worse over the years and has now become horrendous with potholes in the middle of the road with holes and drop offs along the full length of the road. During the recent wet weather this problem has become far worse as the rain actually covers and hides many of the potholes which creates the effect of driving over land mine areas. The problems with the road have been going on for so long now and this route is extremely busy during the summer with Woodland Waters visitors. There has been the occasional attempt to repair some potholes in the past but these were very poorly executed and quickly return to their original poor state. We have had to replace both the front suspension springs on our car recently and I purely out this unwanted expense down to the poor state of this road. Councillor Mrs Rosemary Kaberry-Brown Resides in Sudbrook and I would like to think she has tried to get this carriage way repaired properly.

  • Please can these potholes be looked at as a matter of urgency - scheduled for repair two weeks ago - needs to be done now! Near miss this morning as they are on a blind bend and as you try to avoid the pot holes cars coming round the corner also trying to avoid them. PLEASE DON'T WAIT FOR AN ACCIDENT OR A FATALITY

  • Still not repaired. All takes too long. Perhaps a personal complaint by phone is the better solution. You just have to keep bothering these people and make a nuisance of yourself in an attempt to kickstart some kind of action. Usual pathetic response to a national problem that costs motorists hundreds of pounds a year in repair bills. Abysmal.

  • THESE HAVE NOT, I REPEAT NOT, BEEN FIXED.

    Your information is totally false. This has gone on too long. It’s about time you got your act together and sorted it! Disgraceful time frame bordering on incompetence.

  • These have not been repaired, work needs to be done ASAP.

  • In Sudbrook we have a councillor and Conservative MP, yet still nobody can come out and repair holes in the road which are dangerous liable to cause damage to vehicles. These three problems have not been repaired and not even attempted to be repaired. I have already submitted photographs and no further pictures required as this has not changed. Attached is an example of the Waze traffic map for the area. Get throw repair done now.
