At the jiunction of Owen Street and St Benedicts Close if you are turning right into the close there is a large pothole. It has been present for approx 2 months and growing daily. Due to its location and cars parked around the area it is normally impossible to drive around it.

  • The pothole as reported on 21st November 2014 has now grown extensively at the junction of Owen Street/St Benedicts Close. As it is adjacent to my property I have no option but to drive over it to access my drive. Is the council prepared to repair any damages to my vehicle as a result of the state of the road?? It is bewildering as to why it is taking so long to repair the first reporting of this offending pothole, as the lights in the street are turned off at 00:00am every night anyone walking in the street, would not see this hole and would result in severe damage to themselves if they fell down it.

  • I was contacted shortly after I initially posted on here as the road is not adopted it remains the responsibility of North Warwickshire Council. He went and looked at the hole and even stood in it and said he would give it urgent attention. The beginning of December to now is not what I class as urgent and I have now broken an alloy wheel by constantly having to drive in this hole. How many more broken car parts or going forward people parts have to occur before its repaired.
