Surface breaking up

Reported via desktop in the Pothole on road/cycleway category anonymously at 06:36, Thursday 1 June 2023

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 460791.

The paving adjacent to the precious large tarmac repair is continuing to break up with lumps scattering over the road. This is supposed to be the cultural quarter but the state of this section is appalling and continuing to deteriorate. Please don’t let the contractor repair with more tarmac, which is mounded and ugly.

  • Further to the original report from another person, this morning it is even worse and the broken stone setts are breaking up faster as this is where wheels of cars turn the corner and into driveways. The only way this will stop breaking up is if the ever expanding and unsightly tarmac patch is removed and a proper stone work repair is carried out to stabilise the substrate. Otherwise this will only continue to deteriorate. Pleas fix it properly.

  • Well, the repair was 'patched' with yet more tarmac, but within two weeks both the patching and more of the stone paving around the brand new extended patch is breaking up again. The only way to sort this is to fix it properly by replacing the stone paving! Tarmac/bitumen is not working even as a band aid and you are just wasting your time and effort and our money in continuing to not do a proper job. It is an eyeresore.

  • This is really unsightly and it's no good just piling more tarmac on top - it needs properly fixing with replacement of stone setts. I got a puncture driving down this road and believe the sharp shards of loose stone were responsible.
