The drainage to this part of the road needs maintenance. Several potholes have developed over recent months, some deep and some with spring water discharging from them. As the lane is narrow, vehicles have to drive through the potholes with potential for vehicle damage. These are especially hazardous for cyclists coming down the hill.

  • These potholes have got deeper and more dangerous in the last few weeks to the extent the lane is virtually impassable

  • I raised this matter in Feb prior to the spring erupting into this large pothole. The combination of storm run off from Bannerdown common and the spring eruptions are causing substantial damage to the rear of Eden Park properties. The increase in volume and size of delivery vehicles is causing the edge of the road surface to fail. Please allow this to continue so that the lane becomes impassible to vehicular traffic as it is narrow (2M in places) has no passing places and is frequently used by pedestrians taking exercise towards the common and other footpaths. We can repair our properties without concern that they will further damaged. A pothole patch will not resolve the issue of storm water management. I have substantial video records of the storm water effects which I can share but there is no platform for downloading.
