The bump that became a hole … has now gonePosted: August 7, 2015
Late on Tuesday evening I reported the problem – yet again – to the Royal Borough of Greenwich via their online reporting system. Within five minutes I received an automated email reply, but I did not expect much to happen for some time. Imagine my surprise – therefore – when two contractors arrived early on Thursday morning and began repairing the road.
After compacting the debris in the hole with a small road-roller, they laid a thin skin of Tarmac over the debris, and then used a compactor to flatten the new surface so that did not protrude above the surrounding road surface.
The whole repair took less than half an hour to complete … and I am not convinced that it is going to survive the battering it is going to get once the warning signs and traffic cones have been removed.
