Skid hazzard due to washout of tarmac waste & other rubble & stones

Reported via desktop in the Roads and Highways category anonymously at 10:27, Monday 5 July 2021

Sent to Rutland County Council less than a minute later

This happens EVERY TME IT RAINS due to RCC employing Tarmac subcontracting Jordans to put tarmac waste (previously lifted old tarmac made into chippings) into what SHOULD BE THE SURFACE WATER CHANNEL on Cow Lane as there is NO PROPER SURFACE WATER SEWER IN THIS SECTION of what is an old farm track with a thin layer of cracked concrete and an even thinner layer of badly laid tarmac. IT IS DANGEROUS AND NEEDS TO BE SHOVELED OUT BY HAND AND REMOVED FOREVER AND NEVER PUT BACK AND A PROPER CHANNEL NEEDS MAKING SO THAT THE RAIN CAN RUN EASILY DOWN THIS STEEP PART OF COW LANE AND INTO THE BROOK. Please STOP being stupid and WASTING MONEY & at the same time MAKING A WORSE HAZZARD.

  • It had been PARTLY cleared up but 6the debris had NOT all been removed & since then we had another 2 big storms so there is MORE WASHOUT including WHOLE BRICKS from where there SHOULD be a proper gully to channel the flow of water as ther eis NO proper surface water drain/sewer pipe in thsi sloping part of Cow Lane. all the loose chippings and all the loose debris that has accumulated NEEDS DIGGING OUT FROM THE GULLY AND FROM THE GRASS and a PROPER JOB NEEDS DOING ONCE & FOR ALL . STOP WASTIN G MONEY BY DOING A QUARTER OR LESS OF THE REAL JOB & DO IT PROPERLY. You SHOULD have done this as advised by the surveyors who came to look before you WASTED MONEY building a laybye that is no use to anyone except for parking the van when the men come to cut grass inside The Banks. The laybye is in a totally STUPID place & cost money that SHOULD HAVE BEEN SPENT ON PROPER DRAINAGE. PCC & RCC STOP WASTING MONEY !

  • What was the spec that Rutland County Council agreed with contractor. They filled holes with used tarmac and it unsurprisingly washed out. Did the council pay the contractor?

  • Until you dig up the entire road & put in proper surface water drainage and remove all the loose rubble that had been put there by contractors over years this problem will never be fixed & you eil keep wasting money. Get men with shovels to remove the waste immediately & plan proper drainage & road works asap.

  • This problem has not been rectified. Rutland Council have resurfaced road lower down cow lane today why did they not fix gully and road higher up at same time. Council are incompetent. They keep deleting fix my streets when work has not been done correctly.
