  • Water is continuously flowing from more than one hole in the road causing further damage including to the kerbside, nearby drain and now onto the main road. If not repaired soon a hole could form blocking all entry to the estate!!

  • This has not been resolved. A temporary tarmac patch has been placed over the hole but this is not sufficient. The road surface is deteriorating and eventually it will collapse.

  • The entrance to Martin Close is deteriorating with more potholes appearing. Filling in the potholes without first draining the water away is a waste of time and money. Cannot this spring water be drained into one of two drains nearby.
