There are 3 different problems. First -a spring is coming up in the middle of the road resulting in a continual stream of water . This will be very icy soon and is eroding the road surface. A proper engineering solution is needed to divert the water away from the raod. Second- there is sunken area of road following work in 2018 to replace water mains. The making good was not adequate. Third - in the summer a road maintenance team filled rutted area on the edge of the road with large loose stones (aggregate). It lasted about 10 days until the next storm - it was washed to the bottom of the hill causing a loose gravel hazard (a danger for motor bikes cyclists in particular).

  • This morning the running water down Baulk Road had turned to black ice. This leak needs to be sorted urgently to avoid a major incident on this hill. We slipped on it this morning walking our dog.
