GONE POTTY: Croxley residents share concerns over perpetual pothole problems

 Published on: 10th February 2023   |   By: Bryn Holmes   |   Category: Uncategorized

Croxley residents have taken to social media to implore the county council to do something about the terrible state of the village’s roads.

Potholes in the area have worsened in recent months due to snow and icy conditions, and those concerned about the issue have spoken to CROXLEYnews about the roads that cause them the most trouble.

Barton Way and The Green were among the roads most frequently complained about.

Resident Julian Keenlyside recently reported a large pothole near The Artichoke pub on The Green.

She said: “[It’s] not at all funny if you don’t spot it on a motorbike. It has now been repaired, but with a patch that has already sunk.”

Melissa Herbert added: “I drive from Croxley to Bushey every day and the roads are horrendous!”

Other roads highlighted by residents for cracks and potholes include Malvern Way, Sherborne Way and Girton Way.

Resident Sue Deane complained about the procedure for repairing potholes, saying: “What I find most frustrating is that when workmen go out to repair a hole, another hole within spitting distance gets ignored because it hasn’t got a job number.

“Why can’t the workmen be told to repair all holes they find on a particular road? Surely it must cost less time and money that way?”

Hertfordshire County Council has been contacted for comment.
