St Oswalds Crescent into Bagmere Close

Sent to Cheshire East Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3543953.
The surface of the road at this location has been falling to pieces for over a year now and it is becoming dangerous as the holes are now 4-5 cm deep in places. I have an old car which I use on a regular basis but have had to stop due to the damage that this section of road is causing to my wheels and suspension. This morning I saw an elderly resident lose her footing in one of the holes and stubble, she was just trying to go out for a walk in the village! It is not acceptable for the council to just keep ignoring this problem. Does someone need to get seriously hurt before something is done to fix this road.
Thank you for contacting Cheshire East Highways. We have logged your enquiry and passed it to a member of our team.
Our teams are working hard to manage and respond to reports from members of the public.
We are currently experiencing an increase in demand of reported issues along with a temporary reduction in available staff due to Covid-related sickness and self-isolation.
During this time and until the situation improves, we will be prioritising those issues that present most risk to the travelling public. While we normally aim to provide you with a response within 20 working days, response times for all other reported issues may take longer than usual.
Thank you for your patience.

We have assessed the issue and added it to our improvement programme for repair over the longer term. This means we are unlikely to do any improvement work here during the current financial year. Our programmes sometimes change if more funding becomes available. You should check our website for any updates. You can find details of the work planned for this location and where it currently sits on the programme through our website: https://www.cheshireeast.gov.uk/ highways_and_roads/ road-maintenance/ road-repair-and-improvement-programme-2021-2022/ road-repair-and-improvement-programme-2021-2022.aspx
