Potholes in Basildon still waiting for repair, eight months after first complaint
7:00am Monday 4th February 2013 in News
A MAN is still waiting for a dangerous section of road to be repaired near his home, despite lodging a complaint about potholes which are deep enough to stand in eight months ago.
Roy Wheatley, 39, of Clickett Hill, Basildon, first got in touch with Essex County Council about the poor condition of the road surface in Nether Priors in August last year.
However, despite numerous attempts since then to bring it to the council’s attention, no repairs have been carried out and he says the potholes, which are on a blind corner of the road, are getting worse.
An Essex County Council spokesman said: “We are aware of the defect at Nether Priors which will be repaired within the next two weeks, depending on the weather.”
