Potholes! - Report them and let us know what happened

Postby Paul Thomson » Fri Jun 08, 2007 3:41 pm

As cyclists we are all accutely aware of the road surface, particularly when it's bad and even more so when there are potholes that could cause damage to you and your bike.

If anyone knows of a hole or a section of very bad surface then tell us on here, and also report it using the CTC pothole reporting website:
http://www.fillthathole.org.uk/report

It would also be useful to know when you spotted the hole, when you reported it and most important of all when it is repaired (if at all!)

Cheers,

Paul

Just to get the ball rolling, I have just reported that big hole at the top of the rise coming back from the rutn of the 10 course:

I have already done the stretch of road down to the finish months ago... :roll:

Potholes

Postby fletchkl » Mon Jun 11, 2007 8:29 am

I've reported two sets of potholes on the Gt Gaddesden to Hudnall corner on the CTC website to back up Paul's previous report. Perhaps if Herts CC and Bucks CC are bombarded with reports they might actually discharge their duty of care and fix them!

Just reported #15179

Postby Ian Huntingford » Sun Sep 28, 2008 8:44 pm



Terrible section of Nettleden Road in Little Gaddesden, just S of junction with Hudnall Lane. Hard to believe how bad it's been for such a long time. Punctured there recently.

I noticed there were already five other reports for the same spot, so there has to be a small chance that it could be sorted before I'm too old to cycle anymore .... :x :roll:

report 15179 - positive update

Postby Ian Huntingford » Mon Dec 29, 2008 12:47 pm

I am very pleased to report that a siginificant section of Nettleden Road, including the problem area I reported, has been repaired and in fact completely resurfaced, i.e. not just the usual shoddy patch-up job.

I was out on Christmas Day morning - had to get that bit in! - and nearly missed my turn off because the road was virtually unrecognisable as the accident-waiting-to-happen that it used to represent.

Good news indeed. Hope it's the first of many such repairs, but I shan't be holding my breath.

Here's wishing everyone a safe 2009, anyway.

Just to give this a bump.
After the recent cold spell there seem to be a lot of new pot holes around.
I have reported some on the A4146 between Picott's End and Water End.
It would seem that other people have reported some in the same area.
How about a big effort to highlight the issue.
Fill in the form today. It's not that hard a task and could make a big difference to the pleasure of riding.

On my ride today I noticed a lot of the badly broken-up bits of road near the start and finish of the 10 course on the A4146 have been patched up, some of the patching isn't great but a lot of the real wheel-breakers have been filled in.

Yes, they did them all over the last week or so...
Shame the Bucks section south of Dagnall is probably worse than the Herts section ever was now... :roll:
