It looks like many highways defects have been left waiting for attention for so long that expensive remedial works are now needed.
Many carriageways which needed patching in the summer and autumn were ignored. Now some are worn down to the hardcore base while others have multiple surface defects. Several represent a hazard for two wheeled transport users.
We have reported the following streets (but these may just be the tip of the iceberg).
- Walker Drive
- Vincent Way
- Gladstone Street
- Hotham Avenue
- Lowfields Drive
- School Street
There are also some problems also with leaf and tree detritus. We’ve reported two areas
- Green Lane
Finally builders waste has been dumped in the little Green Lane garage area. We’ve asked for it to be removed.
