Urgent action needed to repair potholes

Share this article

I have been interested to read about the state of streets and roads in Burnley regarding potholes and the general state they are in.

I have noticed on my street a large increase in cracks and potholes. I have lived in Ivan Street since the 1960s and the street then was cobbled. However, if I recall, in July 1987 it was resurfaced and made a lot better.

In that time it has never been given a new layer and has only had “botched up” repairs to cover up the cobbles. But traffic has increased with traffic using the street as a short cut or parking for the pub at the end. I see work gangs on other streets repairing cracks and holes, but Ivan Street seems to be not on their urgent list. It needs attention sooner rather than later.
