MK45 3QH entrance to Howard Close from Silver End Rd

Reported via mobile in the Road Surface category anonymously at 13:12, Thursday 13 June 2024

Sent to Central Bedfordshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 408057.

Despite Howard Close being adopted 40 years ago the end of the road still has cobble stones across it rather than tarmac to merge it with Silver End Rd. I think this must have just been missed many years ago. I live at No 2 Howard Close and potholes constantly develop by the cobblestones and vehicles make a noise every time they pass over it. It is also unsightly and implies that HC is still a building site rather than a road that has been adopted 40 years ago. Please could you remove cobbles and tarmac the road to merge with Silver End Road. Thank you
