|The latest (and huge) pothole at the Lochloy junction on the A96|
One of our pothole watch squad sends in his latest Gurn, here's what Billy reports:
"Hi, just to say pot holes on A96 just across from Bridgemill and quite a big one. The roundabout at King Street has still to be done - man hole covers sunk. The road all the way through the town is bad, including manhole cover near the Regal. I think this is only going to get worse unless something is done to the road surface. It looks just like a farm track in parts."
Thanks for that Billy, the pothole above is indeed in a bad position, drivers have to concentrate going through the lights and then there is the hazard of parked cars on the left of the road - the last thing you need to add to that is a pothole this size.
Has tripled in size over the past fortnight.
if council have been informed,and is not repaired,then a claim for any damage can be claimed from council.
It's a trunk road anon and thus the responsibility of Bear Scotland.
Has anyone actually thought to report it to Bear Scotland ??
More folk that put in a report, more pressure they are under to get it sorted!!
Good point anon, BEAR vehicles regularly travel these roads however. One would anticipate that their employees are instructed to watch for deficiencies on the A96 and especially the well known pothole hotspots but perhaps not.
Found that one yesterday. Quite nasty but I have seen better (worse!).
Well i know BEAR used to have a specific vehicle that traveled the A96 specifically looking for defects, spraying them with yellow paint, to them be repaired later by the repairs crew.
However whether they still do this or not, i don't know.
went onto their site and filled in the details anon. Nearly gave up after rejected four times for some reason however.
Updates on pot hole, mannie from BEAR dodging traffic at present to fill it. Must be a to do before holiday friday task.
