  • Thank you for your patience whilst our inspector reviewed your report. During the review our inspector visited the location on two separate occasions during the past week and could not find evidence of the broken road surface in the location mentioned. There was a pothole located just off the roundabout on the local authority network, which is perhaps what is being referred to. In this instance, you would need to contact the local authority with your concerns.

    We will continue to review this location for surface damage and will arrange any required work if the situation changes.

    If you require any further update on this issue our Customer Contact Centre is available 24 hours a day at: • 0300 123 5000
