The pavement on our road has been going to pot for a while now – I first reported the problem to Essex Highways at the end of 2012. Via their ‘report a problem‘ tool. For some reason, the original report went wonky and seemed to report on a road miles away. I left it and put it down as ‘one of those things’ and wondered about reporting it again at some point. I think an HGV drove over the pavement and destroyed it, leaving it looking like this..
It was a big pain walking down the road with a buggy before, but now – it was impossible, not to mention we have sheltered housing for the elderly nearby, and the poor bastards have to shuffle along it!
I reported the problem again, and it seemed to work, men came out and fenced off the dodgy area, then a week or so later some other men came and marked what looks like where they plan to replace the pavement. But then.. nothing. It’s been fenced off for over two months, and nothing has happened. I went to look at the ‘job’ reference on the website and found it had been marked as ‘completed’.
Want to see the completed repair?
That is it.. The completed repair by Essex Highways is fencing off the damage. BRILLIANT. Bravo ECC!
