Large deep potholes and mud on roadway

Sent to Rutland County Council 4 minutes later

I regret to advise that the adopted section of Pinfold Lane from the Junction with Cordle Way up to the start of the bridle path (adjacent to the garage driveway of number 15 Pinfold Lane) is in a very poor state. It is thick with mud and there are several large potholes, two of which are 40mm in depth.

Several times a week I walk into the village and occasionally I do this during dark evenings. The present state of the lane presents a health & safety issue in addition to potential damage to vehicles. Last week I had to replace a relatively new tyre on my car due to pothole damage.

There were two occasions last year when I received letters advising that the lane was to be closed for re-surfacing work to be carried out. A gang with heavy equipment came on both occasions but only effected patching, up to and around Bowling Green Lane.

The lane is never cleaned by the road sweeping vehicle due to the lane being excluded from the driver's itinerary.

I would be grateful if the following could be given your attention:- 1) cleaning of the lane and for regular cleaning to be included in the road sweeping vehicle driver's schedule. 2) apply effective re-laying or good repairs to the surface. 3) treat this matter as a health & safety issue.

Thank you.
