Follyfield is due to be cosmetically transformed with a 16mm layer of asphalt on 2 October, ‘following on from the patched in works carried out during 2020/21’, according to the note from the contractor we have all received.
Residents will be aware that there remain numerous potholes, some up to 50mm deep. Several of us have asked the Parish Council to request that the potholes be filled before the thin asphalt layer is added, and I have sent details of the location and depth of potholes to the Parish Clerk for forwarding to Wiltshire Highways.
If this is not done, we will be left with potholes, albeit smooth-sided, but still able to collect water which will freeze and break up the asphalt. More of our taxes wasted on a short-term bodge.
