New surface dressing

Reported in the Road works problem category anonymously at 16:08, Fri 21 June 2019

Sent to Warwickshire County Council 3 minutes later

2.30 pm Tuesday 18th June. Cycled from Leamington Road onto Southam Road onto recently surfaced dressed road. Surface had not been properly rolled, leading to getting tar on my tyres, which then picked up loose gravel, destroying my drivetrain, including the chain and the derailed (gear) hanger see attached photographs). The road was open, and there was no signage to indicate that it was unsafe to travel. However, it is clear that the surface was so unsatisfactory that the road should not have been open. Receipt for the cost of repair attached. Can you please arrange for me to be reimbursed
