The two ironworks/drains located on Blendon road next to the entrance to Arcadian Avenue have sunk considerably. Large vehicles such as buses and lorries hit the two at speed causing the foundations of our house to shake heavily at all hours and has caused a number of internal cracks within the property. Pothole halfway between the two drains have the same effect when large vehicles hit it. The problem is worsened by vehicles, including local busses, travelling well over the speed limit.

  • Please can this issue be addressed. This problem is getting worse with each passing day and its now been the best part of a month sinse this was reported. This is causing damage to properties in close proximity to the problem. Large vehicles, the vast majority of which are double decker buses, continue to speed dangerously over the sunken drains and pothole. Its also a huge nuisance, both day and night. This is a massive safety concern for both the public and property owners effected by the issue.
