We refer to the C7, of course. Actually it’s quite short, but it’s certainly winding, and it’s badly maintained, busy and dangerous. Before Christmas ESCC Highways did a re-patching exercise on it. We all know what problems that caused, and that it seems to have left some parts of the surface in a worse state than before. The patching was supposed to be the preliminary to a full re-surface later this year so we’ll have to wait and see how that works out.
In the meantime the best thing we can do as a village is to keep reporting the problems so as to make our voice heard at the County Council. Here is the link to the pothole reporting page: it’s quite informative and simple to use, so please do make an effort to report any damage you see: it will help us all.
