Landscaping not done and materials left - 2nd report

Reported via mobile in the Abandoned Materials (NH) category anonymously at 05:52, Tuesday 9 January 2024

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5416801.

Second time i have reported this now with no update from first apart from someone is being sent out. Would be nice to be updated with what is happening.

Road works were undertaken on the verge of the A120 by a contractor fitting pipes under the ground for over a month from Wix Junction to Goose Green to Horsely Cross Roundabout. There is debris left along the stretch and more importantly when the undertook the work and finished they did not landscape the ground level as it was before and have left it like a building site with thick deep tracks all over the whole half mile stretch looks terrible. Surely that should be left landscaped and seeded as it was cut grass there before hand. Mud is all over the kurbs and onto the road. No one has done an inspection of the finished works clearly and its just been left.

Got worse with mud spilling over onto the main road.

To think europeans coming over on the boat at Harwich drive past that must wonder if we care.
