On first entrance to top of hill and along part of straight stretch potholes

Reported via desktop in the Potholes & road surface category anonymously at 13:30, Thursday 8 April 2021

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2659981.

At the lower entrance to Lays Drive potholes are keep being repaired to no avail as they reappear within a couple of months. Between number 87-97 Lays Drive a complete rebuild has taken place with large industrial vehicles working opposite 91-95 for six months. This has completely taken the surface off the road and is in places worn down to the original road leaving a ridge in the tarmac and there is a pothole occurring in front of my property number 93. I have filled several buckets with the road chippings as they are dragged into my house. The road is a disgrace. This is compounded as Lays Drive is a bus route.
