Road surface breaking up again after repairs

Reported via mobile in the Potholes category anonymously at 06:38, Tuesday 27 February 2024

Sent to Northumberland County Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5636395.

Problems with this section of road were reported very recently and someone has clearly attended and filled in some of the potholes with tarmac. However, the job was clearly inadequate as the road surface has broken up again and some of the bigger deeper potholes are as bad as ever. The road surface is a hazard to drivers and will just continue to get worse if it’s left. PLEASE 🙏 can this section of road be properly resurfaced as you are just wasting money and time by doing the job poorly. Just putting tarmac into the hole without properly preparing the hole and then sealing the edges isn’t working.

  • I was at the site on Friday 12th April. The road surface now has deep and wide holes as well as general deterioration of the surface. We now have traffic from visitors to the area who are staying at the numerous properties at Tughall Steads and who are unfamiliar with the area. It is only a matter of time until someone’s car is damaged. Please can this road surface be properly repaired. Thank you!
