Drain lo longer has any tarmac around it

Reported via desktop in the Pothole (NH) category by Alan Brown at 22:51, Thu 22 December 2022

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4053828.

A31 Azalea Roundabout, westbound. Hard against the roundabout itself (i.e right on the driving line for the "fast" lane. The tarmac has is missing round the entire drain creating a quite severe problem for driver in that lane. This has been getting progressively worse over the last few weeks.

  • Having driven past it a few times now, I see that the drain and the tarmac around it is about and inch below the road surface level.

  • Yes fixed... sort of. The tarmac has been replaced, but the drain itself has sunk so there is still quite a nasty depression. Anyway, they are doing some road repair work round there at the moment, so they might redo a better job... or I may just have to re-report it.

    State changed to: Fixed
