So near and yet so far. We almost got through the year without a thread about potholes.

They don't bother me as much as they used to since I stopped driving cars on massive alloys with rubber-band like low profile tyres. Infact, I quite like the one by the Rising Sun, if I hit it at about 50MPH it causes the clock on my dashboard to start working again until I next turn the ignition off. LOL.

My gripe is with speed bumps. Completely wrong name for them. If I hit them at any speed they bugger my car up.

The two grids on the a6 are a joke, one just outside the cock pub and the other outside sign a rama.

Bean Leach Road is being resurfaced, though its more of a patchwork quilt style. Also resurfacing part of the junction with Commercial Road.

They also had some tarmac left over so they decided to add a speed bump as well!

I know them well. So sunken, you could pot-hole down the sodding things.

A speed bump Damien? shock I can't believe it - that area does not need a speed bump!

From the date of my last post, they filled in the grids with tarmac which just sunken again.
Also during this rain you get splashed when walking past as they are also blocked up.
Anyone noticed the clanging sunken manhole at the commercial Rd junction just past Betfred.

Unfortunately the council need to save as much money as they can for this much needed bypass!
Who knows maybe we will actually need it when all these shoddy repairs make our roads undrivable?

Most of the roads will be like dirt tracks in a bit if they continue to leave the potholes to get worse. Costs more to bodge repair than to do a proper job and have a last a while.

Pot holes will pale into insignificance compared to Option 1. See Consultation Sham post.
