In previous years when we’ve done this, potholes have been filled quickly. A reminder though, we’re still in winter and such this type of work normally happens when the risk of frost, snow and ice has passed. We’ll be keeping an eye on this and will provide an update when a Council response arrives. Thanks to everybody for their input.
