Large pothole in centre of road after previous roadworks immediately before 9 Fern Cottage heading northbound towards junction of Spital Hill

Reported via desktop in the Pothole on road/cycleway category anonymously at 17:54, Monday 24 May 2021

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 397280.

This series of potholes was reported by me on 27 February 2021, also by Cllr Matt Boles, who accompanied one of your Highways people. A temporary bodge was done by your contractors close by Woodland Chase, but they did not address this line of potholes on northbound side of the road between 3 Summer Hill and 9 Fern Cottage. My last report even contained a series of photographs to clearly illustrate the position at that time. Similarly your contractors did not address the other potholes I reported at that same time, namely outside Loricha House further along Summer Hill, and also those opposite 3 Summer Hill. I will report these separately.

  • The property is 7 Fern Cottage, not number 9. The large hole is in the centre line of the road between the bus stop and number 7 Fern Cottage. It is unmissable and is the site of previous utility works which at some time were dug up and crossed both carriageways at 90 degrees.
