A number of pot holes have merged together to form a trench of damaged carriageway.

Reported via desktop in the Pothole on road/cycleway category by Paul Devey at 10:30, Wed 11 November 2020

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 379648.

The carriageway is severely rutted and breaking up to the extent that a stretch of about 10 metres is falling away into the adjacent dyke. The stretch of carriageway needs completely rebuilding as many previous attempts at patching up have all deteriorated very quickly and not solved the underlying problem. The issue is so bad that drivers are now straddling the white line and driving on the opposite carriage way to avoid the damaged section of road. The damaged road starts just after the National Speed limit signs after Lake Ross on Dozens bank on the A151 going towards West Pinchbeck from Pode Hole. The issue has been there for a number of weeks but with the cold wet weather has seemed to get a lot worse over the past two weeks.

  • The road works in this stretch of road which have been in place since roughly November with no works being carried out, has fallen into disrepair. The traffic lights are broken this morning and the stretch has become even more damaged due to vehicles all using the same stretch of carriageway: please fix this issue!! It has been months and is only getting worse, it’s dangerous now!!!
