Bad road surface.

Reported via desktop in the Road Surface category anonymously at 16:31, Fri 3 September 2021

Sent to Central Bedfordshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 361138.

After seeing a cyclist nearly being nocked of his bike when trying to avoid the rough broken up road surface outside my house, (30A High Street). Please can you soon bring up the subject of the condition of the High Street road surface. After the amount of work done over the years, along the whole length of the High Street, isn't it about time it was re-surfaced. Many repairs later, it looks like a patchwork quilt, and not a tidy one. On the same subject, the Box Junction at the junction with the A6 is generally ignored as almost non existent, badly needs re- painting.

Awaiting your comment. Thank you.

  • Another customer called asking for an update.
    When advised that it will continue to be monitored the customer asked if anything else can be done as the holes are much deeper than an inch and vehicles are driving on the wrong side of the road to avoid them.
