Opposite 69 Tilsworth Road (Rose Cottage)

Reported via desktop in the Road Surface category anonymously at 15:06, Thu 9 September 2021

Sent to Central Bedfordshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 361337.

The condition of this road surface has been reported on numerous occasions over more than a year and a half. The condition of the road continues to deteriorate to such an extent that the pot hole, that runs across the road has now reached 5.8cm deep from the horizontal - as illustrated in the attached photos.

The Council keeps saying that works are scheduled and people keep asking when so please say when.

The condition the surface in this whole area is having an effect on the Health and Wellbeing of the immediate residents - we continually get vibrations and thumps as HGVs and buses hit the damage. Which wakes us up in the night - including sleeping babies - and the first bus after 5am is especially intrusive. That coupled with the already documented damage to properties that is incurring has reached unacceptable levels. The Council seems to think that the ground conditions in this area are untypical, but there is an underground spring and stream across the road and that amplifying the effects of vehicle impacts.
