Serious Road Subsidence NOT repaired
Reported via Android in the Road surface issue category anonymously at 14:52, Wed 20 November 2019
Sent to Lincolnshire County Council 3 minutes later. Council ref: 359511.
A couple of weeks ago the road subsided suddenly here and after a few days works was done to correct an underground drain collapse by working from both sides in the pavements and then resurfacing them. No attempt was made to sort the road subsidence and this has now become some 6 to 8 inchs deep by some 4 feet across in the centre of the road. Apart from low vehicles bottoming out, deep water is collecting in the dip and freezing in the night frost. This dip is on a bend which can be tricky at the best of times due to parked vehicles on the bend but is now "an accident waiting to happen" due to cars taking avoiding action to stop bottoming out and now to avoid the ice in early morning.
This subsidence needs urgent action without further delay!!!!!

This depression in road surface is severe and when filled with water obscured and therefore potentially dangerous to the unwary driver unfamiliar with its presence. It’s virtually impossibly to avoid as it extends across the width of the left hand carriageway. This is a heavily used access road to a large number of properties. As a minimum, temporary signage should be considered warning of its presence. It’s impact on vehicles hitting at any speed approaching 25mph is potentially worse than the subsidence at Park Road Spalding, as this has a greater impact on the near side wheel.

This subsidence has still not been repaired yet and the dropped area has increased in the past week and the overall depth as well. When it is wet water now extends over most of the road width and the depression is impossible to avoid.

Why have the LCC changed the status of this issue to “No further action” when nothing at all has been done in the past 8 weeks other than block off two thirds of the road with 6 large cones?
