  • Severn Trent were supposedly going to fix it but nothing has happened and details of previous reports have disappeared from this website. With autumn bringing poorer weather this will soon be dangerous. When is it going to be addressed?

  • I'm one of the many motorists STILL awaiting positive news or action to repair this subsidence. This has been an issue for over 2 years now. Please deal with it Highways!

  • This is not satisfactory. Given that this has been repeatedly reported by many people, to say that 'a response has been sent to the originator' is not acceptable. What is your response? Is it going to be fixed? When? By whom?

  • Hear hear!! This is just sweeping the matter into the hedgerow. You should be able to provide a far more detailed response to all the complainants - simply dismissing us by saying a response has been sent to the originator (who is ...?) could mean you've not replied to anyone! Why can't you post it here for all to see? Everyone I speak to has an issue with this section of the road - it poses a real risk to motorcyclists, cyclists, and just about anyone in a car doing a sensible speed. You REALLY need to be more transparent. Tommy F - Disgruntled Braunston resident
