  • State changed to: Investigating

    Updated by Lincolnshire County Council at 15:03, Thu 29 June 2023

  • The site was inspected on 29/6/23. The area in question looks to be where a lorry has suddenly stopped/accelerated on the Hill, leaving Burwell. We will inform the contractors so we can assess if any remedials are needed. Thank you for reporting this matter.

    State changed to: No further action

  • Not a bad excuse, but I wonder what the contractor will come back with, and if the taxpayer will have to foot the bill once again for the repairs. Will you be publishing their reply on here?

    State changed to: Open

  • I agree poor excuse and would suggest its a contractor issue and should not be taxpayer cost. Very bumpy in car but could be dangerous to motorcycles. Look forward to speedy repair.

  • Most of their work is of poor quality, total waste of time and money. I am calling for an investigation into their shoddy work practices. Keep reporting faults on here, they don't like it but if it's reported they can't deny having no knowledge.

  • The poor surface has been there ever since it was resurfaced. The lorry excuse is nonsense.

  • Just driven this, no chance a lorry accelerated or braked hard here. Poor workmanship. Fix it.

  • When leaving burwell and going up the first hill there are three rushes in the road halfway up and then another three. When I pass over this bit of road it pulls my car towards the centre line and feels like I’m skidding . I don’t even drive fast. It feels dangerous to me and I try and go another way to Louth now. It’s not very safe

  • Why is this not being addressed

  • It is actually two places this has happened, so whichever overpaid council worker assessed it and dreamed up the aforementioned excuse is an absolute dreamer! Create another report if it isn't repaired soon. Power in numbers. They don't like to be called out on their poor planning or quality of work. Our money will be wasted fixing this anyway....

  • Temporary "uneven road" signs have appeared

  • You've been aware of this over 6 months. My report now can't be found on fixmystreet, but luckily I have logged this report so can show the public (we pay you for your awful repairs) that you're deceitful and calculated. FIX YOUR MESS UPS!

    Posted by Fixar Rhodes at 23:18, Saturday 13 January 2024

  • Can we please have an update on this. The road has not been repaired and the only action seems to have been warning signs. This is totally unacceptable work and someone needs to take responsibility.

  • No chance of lincs highways admitting liability as it means they'd be responsible if anything happened. They blamed a lorry braking or accelerating on their poor workmanship. The only way you'd get them to do something is to keep making reports with pictures as they'll ignore you otherwise! Keep on at them, the lazy, bodging cowboys
