A resident in Arnold has taken to social media and mocked a council after they carried out what he described as ‘truly awful’ repair work to a street blighted by potholes.
James Street was recently resurfaced and repaired by Nottinghamshire County Council, but their efforts weren’t appreciated by one resident who quickly slammed their efforts on Twitter.
In a tweet over the weekend @Russiankareoke wrote: “Congratulations on the truly awful job done resurfacing James Street in Arnold’ and posted a photo of the job.
He had attributed the work to Gedling Borough Council, but they were quick to point out that the work had been carried out by their county counterparts who are responsible for all roads in Notts.
Nottinghamshire County Council swiftly responded after the criticism online.
A spokesman for their Highways Departments said: “The carriageway has been micro surfaced, which is a protective seal coat which extends the life of pavement.
“It is a thin, tough layer of asphalt emulsion blended with finely crushed stone for traction.
“This is a cost-effective method to renew the road surface and seal minor cracks and other irregularities.”
