Between 56 and 91 Thirlmere - pothole trench
Reported via desktop in the Pothole category anonymously at 15:03, Sunday 14 August 2022
Sent to Cheshire East Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3752937.
A utility trench dug some time ago across Thirlmere has sunk and the car is jarred seriously if you drive over it - particularly on the 91 Thirlmere side of the road. There is a "bridge" of tarmac in the middle which you have to aim for but it means driving in the middle of the road where it is quite steep. Please can we have the "trench" refilled.
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 deal with defects based on the level of immediate risk. We have assessed the issue and it does not present an immediate risk to highway users at this time. As the problem you have reported is not causing an immediate safety issue we will now look at the best long- term approach for this location. We keep all roads and highway assets safe through our routine inspections. If anything is identified as a risk during a future inspection, we will take action to deal with it as appropriate.
State changed to: No further action
