Hi - a huge hole was made in the middle of our road (Verena Place) presumably by a large truck, at the beginning of this year (2016). A very rough job was undertaken to fill the hole which then created a massive mound of tar-seal (think higher than a normal speed hump). This mound has subsequently been squashed and is now a hole, plus mound on the sides, with broken road, covering almost the entire width of road. I understand large trucks will continue to use the road while construction of two houses is yet to be completed, however, the hole/mound is now so bad you cannot avoid it by swerving and the bottom of our car scrapes along it every time we drive up or down the street. If left as is, we will likely soon have to park at the end of the road and walk to our property. We would greatly appreciate at least a reasonable short-term solution. Perhaps a temporary plastic covering/bridge. Many thanks.
