The stretch of Moorfields Road in front of Moorlands Infant School is severely damaged, there are many large potholes, particularly along the edge of the road leading to the accumulation of water. Not only is there going to be damage to cars and the buses that use the road, the children walking to school are in danger of being splashed by this mucky water. There is a long standing issue associated with water run off from the hills but also the damage to the road allows the water to collect.

  • Still not sorted and getting worse. Absolutely terrible for the suspension and cars avoiding it make it dangerous next to a school.
