Potholes and disrepair.

Reported via desktop in the A pothole in road category anonymously at 11:24, Tuesday 20 February 2024

Sent to Gloucestershire County Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5603975.

Ebley Road between The Orchard Road turnoff and Ryeford is a nightmare with potholes and damaged road surfaces. the entire stretch needs to be made good and relayed, not just patched. Parking along the road by the old children's home is also a nightmare and causes no end of disruption and danger, the planned double yellow lines need to be treated as a urgent matter.
