  • Before the new year there was temporary tarmac put down to cover a drain that has sunk (road traffic going east), this least stopped the house from shaking to pieces but has recently been removed and not correctly cleaned up, its been left a mess and the drain is still not repaired. Every night is like living in Los Angeles, items in some cases have fallen off shelfs when a HGV shoots past doing 30+.

    This other drain is on the side with traffic heading west, the drain has been damaged for well over a year now and is nor a lot worse and creating loud noises at night when vehicles go over it.

  • They put new tarmac on the 23rd of January 2021, so I am pleased with their response time, but it is also getting damaged very quickly. I am guessing it was a temporary solution until they plan how to fix it properly?

  • A week later (30/01/2021), the manhole is already back to the terrible state it was. The new tarmac is half gone and cars are ‘trampolining’ on an area that looks as if it is ready to collapse.

  • I walked past this issue today. It looks dangerous. If the manhole cover drops it is a danger to vehicles especially motorbikes & cycles. It needs fixing ASAP
