I have today received a report from highways which confirms that the many potholes along the road have occurred as a result of the settlement of an old utility trench which is causing the surface to crack along the length of the road.
It has not been possible to repair the road during the past few months as such a relatively narrow repair would be susceptible to damage from cold, wet weather.
I am, however, delighted to say that following my lobbying Church Lane is now planned for repair in early June. This is likely to require a road closure for a short time.
Obviously I will keep local residents informed should I hear anything more.
