Funny how councils can find plenty of money to build traffic calming humps but virtually none for pot holes.

just read a brilliant idea, and solve 2 problems in 1

Put all the plastic in potholes, and then tarmac them over, Simples
Plymouth to Portsmouth 2017 -2018, that ain't far

I reckon they've figured it out. It's just the humps go down instead of up.

I reported a new pot hole in our Estate last week online..............at 9.30 a.m. next morning they came, inspected, took a photo and informed me online it had been registered to be repaired. Well done P.C.C.

All very well registering it as a pothole. Let us know when it’s repaired :D

It occurred me today, after all the recent rain, that I’m frightened of puddles. Not knowing whether it’s a puddle or a ruddy pothole is a real worry. :twisted:

Nipper, they came , c/w lorry and two men and filled it in with tarmac etc. 15 minutes ago. Well done P.C.C. Took 10 minutes to do the job.

Let us know how long the tarmac stays put. It’s no use just slamming tarmac into the pothole and expecting it to stay. It doesn’t. I can vouch for that.

Delays on the A10 yesterday. Haven’t even a clue what they were doing. Not a lot. 1 guy leaning on the temporary traffic lights which were clearly wrongly set and 1 chubster standing there with his arms folded. We didnt move for about 15 minutes.

And the footpath being created along the A142 or is it a cycle path .... what about the blimmin’ potholes??? Mend the potholes before you start spending our money on new projects. It ain’t rocket science!
