Readers might recognise this picture of a pot-hole in Grafton Road, Broadstairs that closely resembled the gas main excavation in St Peter's.
The picture below was taken 24 hours after my post and shows that some-one who read 'Strife' was able to get some fast action. My only concern was that no running repairs were made to nearby holes at the same time!
I am afraid that lack of maintaining the surface integrity of Thanet's roads over the past few years has now caught out KCC badly this winter , after many nights where wet conditions were followed by frost. Rather than pretty coloured concrete; new tarmac on pavements and costly 'traffic calming' obstructions in the road, I would prefer to see the road surfaces maintained to a satisfactory standard.
I have counted 12 holes of various sizes that have now appeared in about 200 m of Approach Road and they have been getting noisily and shudderingly deeper over the weeks. They are not alone.
I suspect there are thousands of small pot-holes growing into serious suspension shuddering monsters, all over Thanet.
