Potholes not being filled

Friday, January 10, 2014


LETTERS From D. C. Randall, Whitwell:

FURTHER to Brian Pearson’s letter (CP, 03-01-14) regarding potholes, I have notified Island Roads on several occasions in recent weeks pointing out a number of holes in the roads around the Island.

Some have been filled in and others left. It appears the holes have to meet certain criteria, ie width and depth.

A worker was seen measuring two holes next to Ashknowle Lane on the Whitwell to Ventnor Road last Friday. These holes have not been filled in and are a danger to road users and could cause damage to their vehicles. We, as road users, pay our taxes and expect a better service.
