  • This failed repair has been badly repaired and failed three times now. The whole carriageway is undulating and looks as though a collapse is imminent.

  • This so called repair has left a huge chasm underneath the patch. There was a 5 feet hole where the sub-surface has been washed away. There is a likelihood of further collapse, when heavy vehicles pass over. The school busses will soon be re-starting and the bus stops at this point.

  • School buses now back on, articulated trucks looking for the local abattoir all driving over this sinking road repair. It really is just a matter of time before this opens up again.

  • Now the whole junction is in decline after many patch jobs and a chasm underneath that has not been filled. Further heavy traffic is helping the subsidence, and now there is visible evidence of collapse.

  • Nothing further has been done. The road surface is like a roller coaster

  • The state of this junction is appalling. The surface is so uneven, it causes vibrations to my house whenever any large vehicles pass over. Heaven forbid that it should collapse while a large truck or school bus passes over. Cheshire East highways are proving to be less than proficient in their repairs, which are nothing more than patch ups.
