Hersey road potholes.

Reported via desktop in the Pothole on road/cycleway category anonymously at 20:40, Thu 12 August 2021

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 403099.

Hersey road has been full of dangerous potholes since I moved to the area 4 years ago. If there were to be any damage to my suspension this would be billed to the local council, who would risk legal action if they did not pay. Drivers fly down that road at 50mph from both ends sometimes and many go onto the other side of the road to avoid these potholes. In my opinion it is only a matter of time before that avoidance maneuver sends a car into an oncoming child on a bike and there is a fatality. This needs fixed as a priority.

Kind regards.

  • The potholes here have not yet been attended to. The fire engine lives on this road, and school buses use it plus tractors and lorries even though there is supposed to be a weight limit. Plus all the domestic traffic and a local car repair service parks all over it. It is impossible to avoid the many deep potholes and ruts. It says that repairs are in hand. When is this due to take place? Many thanks

  • 403099. The work is certainly not complete. There are still many potholes which have not been filled in. In fact I am not sure if any have. They are not obvious anyway.
