There has been a rapid increase in potholes across Crewe St Barnabas in recent weeks.
Prior to winter I worked to get every pothole repaired before we hit the bad weather. I wanted to get us in the best position I could before the inevitable hit with rain and freezing weather which takes its toll on our roads.
Since then I’ve been working to report every pothole in the area that I’ve seen by walking the streets, photographing and reporting them to Cheshire East Highways.
It is good to see that many have now been addressed, although not as quickly as I would have liked.
I have been repeatedly chasing Cheshire East Highways to get the worst areas in our ward fixed. The repairs that are carried out at this time of year are temporary and it is intended to make the road safe, according to the priority given by Cheshire East Highways. This is why they often simply look “filled”.
I’m glad to see many around Minshull New Road, Badger Avenue, Frank Webb Avenue, Underwood Lane, Sandiway Road, and Windsor Avenue have been fixed. However there are some that are still outstanding and I have reported them.
This week I have reported and followed up issues on McNeill Avenue, Foulkes Avenue, Underwood Lane, Sandiway Road, Westbourne Avenue, Rolls Avenue and Frank Webb Avenue.
If you think there’s a pothole that’s been missed you can report it online.
I have requested more permanent works to the worst areas in St Barnabas. These will move in to schedules of work to be completed outside of Winter months – this is something I am working on, as always.
