It was a rotten rainy day yesterday. Even so, I ventured out, and in doing so found a failure in a road surface.
At the junction of Lightwater Road and Guildford Road, right by the mini-roundabout, the road is both subsiding and breaking up. Repair crews look ready to investigate. See my photo
This isn’t the first time there’s been a issue here. In 2014, after months of an increasing water leak at the mini-roundabout, the road was dug up and a water main was replaced. If memory serves me correctly, even this wasn’t the first issue at this spot, sadly I’ve no photo, so can’t be sure of the date.
Here are my photo’s of the 2014 road repair, and the 2017 road in need of repair. Funnily, the same is true of the water main break on the bridge over the M3 on the Maultway, last year’s major water main burst was preceded by a similar one one a couple of years earlier.
