Repair potholes in streets

This will be the second winter for the unrepaired potholes in St Helens Road by the park gates, as well as the horrendous ones in Bethune Way and Mount Pleasant Road.

I was in Bethune over the Armistice, not one pothole nor litter anywhere. This applied to Belgium all around Ypres and all the First World War memorials in France too.

If the seafront opposite Debenhams can be resurfaced nearly every year, also outside the academy at Red Lake, is it not possible for road repairs to be done on other roads?

The cost to motorists, risks to cyclists and motor-cyclists hitting the potholes who then may need A&E treatment must be enormous.

Some pavements have been repaired, but then a pedestrian can sue the council.
