Staffordshire CC Urged To Repair ‘Monster’ Pot Hole.

I am very aware of the problems that motorists are having with the Essington end of the Kitchen Lane. Though Rita, Mary and IHave been identiying and getting pot holes treated here in Wednesfield North.
We constantly get told of a ‘monster’ pothole that is at the Essington end of Kitchen Lane. One of my constituents tonigh messaged me saying it wasn’t a pothole but a “Quarry”!
I know that the pothole has been reported previously by others…..But I have now got on board, as again today I received further info about a constituent who alleges her car has been damaged by this particular ‘Pot Hole’.
I have given her the address to make a claim. But I also thought that I should share the correspondence that I have now sent to Staffordshire Highways Department……
“Hi I am a Wolverhampton City Councillor and there is a huge pot hole at the junction of Kitchen Lane –High Hill in Essington.
My constituents are informing me that the pot hole under your jurisdiction is damaging their cars. It is a danger to all road vehicles and to pedestrians. I am informed that
Staffordshire County Council has been told numerous times. But no action for repair is taken.
I know that all Local Authorities are under financial and resource pressure. But peoples health and safety are at risk here.
Please take urgent action, and sort this dangerous road defect out now!”
I will of course ensure that any reply is published on this page.
