On Wednesday, Gedling Eye reader Paul Farrell contacted us to claim the prize for most potholed road in Gedling borough on behalf of a junction near his home in Carlton.
He said the junction of Mays Avenue with Mays Close was so bad that “even the pothole repairs have repairs”.
But many readers disagreed that this was the worst affected highway. Many of you have since contacted us via email and Facebook to highlight other areas plagued by potholes.
Elizabeth Whyler emailed us about a side street off Burton Close near her home in Carlton.
“The rain pores and fills the potholes with nowhere for it to run out and drain,” she said.
“Some potholes are over one-inch deep and its like the road has developed concrete pox as every three to five steps you take you’re in a pothole.
“I would love to have a tarmac road with a drainage system as our cars are constantly being damaged because of it. “
Arnold resident Ann-Marie Campion fears the holes some of the roads in the town could damage her vehicle.
She said: “Surgeys Lane and Cross Street are terrible. I imagine my coil springs will not last long!”
Andrew Crane posted on Facebook after seeing our original article.
He wrote: “I’ve just had a wheel and tyre damaged by a big pothole on Shelford Road in Gedling. I tried to claim for the damage but the council sent me a letter saying they are not liable.”
Westdale Lane was a cause for concern.
Readers Leanne Austin and Shirley Duthrie both called out the road for it’s worsening pothole problem.
Leanne wrote: “You should try driving up Westdale Lane (particularly from the speed camera up to the South View Rd junction) in a car with hard suspension!”
Shirley wrote: “I’ve had the springs replaced on my car for the last two years due to potholes near my road on Baslow Avenue. It’s disgusting.”
Andrea Thornton called Coronation Walk ‘an absolute joke’.
She said: “They filled some of them a few weeks ago and within a day they’re already breaking down. Get them done properly and on both sides of the road!”
Debbie Odams described Parkdale Road in Carlton ‘horrendous’.
She wrote on Facebook: ” I’m alway reporting potholes – about 50 at a time. A couple of years ago I reported the and it was that bad they resurfaced sections of the roads in about five different places. I reported them again last year when I counted about 20 potholes but still they didn’t do a full check and ended coming out a further two times.
She added” “My son has already hit one of the holes and got a puncture.”
Paul Dobbs emailed to ask for sympathy on behalf of Netherfield residents.
He wrote: “Just look at the back streets in Netherfield. There’s more holes on some of them than the moon’s surface. It’s a joke. They never get repaired. I bet Arnold is done straight away when there is the slightest sign of a pothole problem. It’s where all the money goes.”
Gedling Eye has contacted Nottinghamshire County Council for comment.
