Oxlands Lane from B1195

Reported via desktop in the Pothole on road/cycleway category anonymously at 22:10, Tue 28 November 2023

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 480642.

Hi, I hope You can help.... I recently reported these potholes (there are more than the 3 images allowed) via "Fix my Street'... I received an update today stating no further action. As a long standing resident of Oxlands Lane, I am well aware of the maintenance history over the past 20 years, which has been minimal while, at the same time I do appreciate budget constraints within services. These potholes have been present for a few years and are continually deteriorating. They fall well within the criteria set by Highways for repair and are unavoidable when using the Lane, as I do 3 or 4 time a day on occasions. There is no doubt that damage to my vehicles will occur, and recently, a courier service advised that they are considering black listing the lane for delivery as a result of these risks. Please note, I'm not asking for major repairs... just for some holes to be filled in to make the lane passable for the residents, and other users here. I appreciate this end of Oxlands Lane only serves 4 properties but frankly, anything beyond the property called The Meadows, and driving towards Bratoft Village, is real bottoming out territory and not usable for most cars. I can understand the reasoning for not repairing that section. The Section between The Meadows and the B1195 is the only viable route out onto the main road for us. You are more that welcome to call me for more detail, and I would be happy to meet with your 'Inspector' on Oxlands Lane to explain the case further.
