CATG Action / Recommendation

15/05/2018 14:29:33 Thank you for raising this issue with Wiltshire Council. The Community Area Transport Group (CATG) will Cllr Allison Bucknell will raise these concerns with the relevant officers.


I am reporting the general state of disrepair of the road in the whole of Lyneham Village. The potholes are now beyond ridiculous and are affecting the way people drive through the village. It is necessary to swerve to avoid them along the length of the main road from Piggys cafe right through to beyond the gates into DSEME Lyneham. I travel this road every day and am reporting it because if nothing is done then you will find yourselves liable for numerous claims from individuals. The 2 areas which are particularly bad are by the turning into Bakersfield as you head towards Royal Wootton Bassett and on both sides of the road by the roundabout outside Tesco. Work was carried out in this area in the last week following a burst water main. I can only assume that you hired a company called Bodgit and Scarper to carry out this work as the road now is worse than before the work was carried out. I would appreciate it if you could update me as soon as possible to let me know when these repairs will be carried out.
