Gedling MP Tom Randall has commented on the dreadful state of the roads across the borough as potholes continue to get worse following floods and cold weather.
A large number of potholes have appeared after recent spells of bad weather, leaving drivers frustrated and scared.
But drivers don’t think enough has been done so far – with one group of residents forming a dedicated Facebook group to highlight the problem and also creating a calendar to make light of the pothole pandemic.
Mr Randall said the state of the roads across the borough is the biggest issue raised by constituents.
He said: “Our roads are not good enough. And I think that not only as your Member of Parliament but also as a local resident.
“I live in Arnold and use our roads to get around the constituency I represent. I know full well that rattling around on the top deck of the 25 bus as it goes down Westdale Lane isn’t pleasant.
“There’s nothing that I would love more than for local residents to wake up one morning to find a fresh blanket of tarmac has been laid across every street in Gedling. But the reality is that this is a big problem requiring a long-term solution. It can be fixed, but it won’t be fixed overnight.”
Mr Randall has now set up a dedicated page on his website offering advice and signposting residents to where they can report problems.

The MP says he is also planning to host a Facebook Live Q&A with Nottinghamshire County Council Leader, Cllr Ben Bradley MP to answer questions on the matter in the near future.
